Please Pass the Alcohol ... Ink

Pin It

Happy Thursday, race fans!

The background for today's card project was created with alcohol inks stamped with a collage-style rubber stamp.

I stamped my image using solvent ink, added some metal and paper flowers, twill ribbon, and a die cut flourish-thingy.

For all the astounding product info, check out the supply list, below.

Sooooooooo, Reid-the-Wild-Child called me yesterday and asked me if I had any Rolling Stone CD's. Sheila, didn't have any so she suggested he ask me.

"Sure, I've got a couple," I answered. "and I think it's pretty cool that you like the Stones, Reid!"

"Well, sure, Auntie, I like old-fashioned music." he said.

"Whaddya mean, 'old-fashioned music'!?!"

"You know, music from the 1900's." he answered.

Deb, this is beautiful! How do you apply the alcohol inks? Is it on glossy paper? Do you go direct-to-paper? I've never used alcohol inks, I guess. I LOVE the effect you've gotten with the tone changes and all. Very interesting!

1900's. Humphh!

Love this card and the colors. Great vintage look. Great work! I saw a commercial on TV for a movie the other day and the dialog went something like this: "Where's Marcus?" "I slapped him into next week. . .he'll be back around Tuesday." LOL Apply? Best, Curt
