Thursdays with Kim - Fun with Alcohol Ink Part 2

Hi girls!

Here's another tutorial on using Alcohol Inka. Last week I've shown you how to use them on glossy paper and even on metal. This week I'll show how to use them on acetate/acrylic.

For this sproject you'll need:
  • 3 colors of Alcohol Inks
  • Mixative
  • Blending Solution
  • Alcohol Ink Applicator Tool & Fel
  • An acetate/acrylic or clear overlay sheet
  • Embelishments
  • A brush
  • Perfect Pearl
  • StazOn Ink
  • A Stamp
  • Vellum Adhesive
I've cut an acetate sheet measuring 5x5 inches, this time I've taken pictures on a white cardstock so you could see better! Now you have to work really fast, add a drop of each three colors ( I used Aqua, Juniper, and Pool), add 2 drops of Pearl Mixative and 2 or 3 drops of Blending Solution.

Apply your mix onto the acetate.

When it's done take your brush, and shake it with some perfect pearl on it (Turquoise).

When it's totally dry, stamp your image on the other side. Affix onto card I use a white cardstock because I wanted a great sky look. I also used some Vellum adhesive. Lastly, Embelish as you want.

It's done! A last tutorial before closing the subject!

You'll need:
  • 2 Contrasting Colors
  • Blending Solution
  • Alcohol Ink Applicator Tool & Felt
  • Glossy Paper
  • Compressed Air Can

Start with one color (I used citrus) and apply to entire paper.

When it's done take the second color (I used Raspberry) and sqeeze a few drops on your paper.

Next, add a few drops of Blending Solution. (My table has a crooked angle which explains the spread!)

I was thinking that It was too girly so I added a couple of Citrus drop. You can always layer with these ink!

The last step is really easy and fun! Take your Compressed Air Can and spray onto the ink. Spray until you like the result.

So here's the final result! It reminds me of Basic Grey's Phoebe & Perhaps collections, or even Crate Paper's Bliss line... This would make a great background for a card too!

The possibilities are endless with these products. You must give it a try! Hugs and kisses
