Alcohol Ink Happiness!

2018-02-18 14.44.14
It was about a month ago that I invested in some Ranger and Pinata Alcohol Inks , and began a fun, albeit sometimes frustrating journey!  The inks are so changeable, so fluid, so fascinating and they become something astonishing!  This is one of my earlier prints, made by blowing the ink and 91% alcohol with a straw to form the petals!  The yellow and purple are opposites on the color wheel so really POP together, don’t you think?  My card base is embossed with a folder by Stampin Up called Petal Burst and the sentiment is from their retired set called So In Love.  Pretty purple jewels accent the sentiment.

When I sit down to play with my alcohol inks, I’m ALWAYS surprised by what happens!  This print was a VERY happy surprise!  I think I created it by blowing the ink and alcohol with a straw; so many prints, so much time…one forgets!  😀  Anyway, I love the added Ranger Mixative Gold which just goes where it wants to!  I die-cut the print with my Gina Marie Designs Stitched Rectangle die, mounted the panel onto a piece of gold metallic paper then onto the black card base.

My sentiment is heat-embossed in black using Altenew’s Label Love stamp set.  I mounted it on a piece of double-stick foam tape for a little dimension.

  1. Your cards are so beautiful. The Zig ones are stunning. The yellow and purple alcohol ink one is a masterpiece. Would really love to see how you did the alcohol inks. Thank you for the video.


  2. Hi Cathy! Thank you so much!! I’ll try to remember to video an alcohol ink process when I pull them out again! No guarantees on the outcome though!! I’m so glad you visited my blog! 🙂
