Alcohol and Ink Technique in Stamping

Have you tried the alcohol and ink technique? Whoa! Maybe I should clarify! This isn’t where you pour yourself a few glasses of wine and then see what you can create with your inks.🤣 This alcohol and ink technique uses rubbing alcohol, a paper drinking straw, vellum cardstock, a heat tool and three ink pads. I think you’ll be amazed at the stunning result!

In this card I’ve also used some Gilded Leafing and gold foil paper to make this card really pop! I jumped on my TikTok Channel tonight to give a brief demo.

Follow me on TikTok!  You’ll see me having some extra fun moments in some of my short videos!

As you might also know, I go “live” every Monday night on Facebook. On Monday, September 13th I’ll be showing this technique in a little more detail, including how I do the gilded leafing and I’ll give you a great tip for adhering your vellum so that the adhesive doesn’t show!

Please join me at 6:00 PM CDT on my Facebook Channel! I’ll show you the alcohol and ink technique as I use an ordinary paper drinking straw to turn a piece of vellum from ordinary into WOW!
