PDD Wednesday/Alcohol Ink Technique

This card was designed for SCS Sketch Challenge and I used the Alcohol Ink Technique on the one background.
Here are some pictures to show you how and what I used on mine
First I didnt have the right paper, so I used shiny photo paper :)

I used 3 different Alcohol inks to start with . At the one end I added a few drops of Ginger, then Latte, and then caramel.

Next I added the copic refill of the colorless blender(just add it over all your colors on the pad, before you start dabbing), I didnt have the alcohol blending stuff for this so I had to make due with what I did have :)

then I just started dabbing in different directions.

Once it looked like this, I added more Ginger and alcohol (copic colorless blending ) to the pad. You can find the Blending Tool here

You will then have a look like this! They will all look sooo different just mess around until you have the look you like :)

Next I used the Distress Crackle paint. I added some to my tile and then dabbed some on the blending tool.

Then just dabb on the paper in different spots :)
And there you have it!!! All done. You can try other colors, of course these are my first colors, so I will have to get others to try :)

Here is my card all done!
Thank you for looking and have a wonderful day!!!!
All products used for this technique(not copic refill) can be found here at Pez-A-Doodle Designs!!!
Have fun, and hope you will try this fun technique :)

Beautiful card. Aren't alcohol inks fun, fun, fun!!!??!! Your colours sounded good enough to eat.. ginger/latte/caramel.. *drool*


Another absolutely fabulous card Cheryl and im loving what you have done with those alcohol inks. I have used this technique on acetate before, but not on normal card, will give it a go. I love the colours and that gorgeous tilda image too. You work always inspires me and the tutorial is fabulous hunny and very useful. Hope you are having a good week, its raining here today, but with no school its nice not to have to do the school run. Enjoy your evening, hugs Linda x
