What to do on Wednesday!
What to do on Wednesday? Using the Black Matte Alcohol Ink Cardstock, a can of compressed air, and some alcohol inks you can make a unique design! Follow along....
You must always start with a fixative alcohol ink since you will be working on black. I used the Snow Cap fixative ink. I placed a few drops of ink first, added a few drops of 91% alcohol (I have found out I have more success with over the blending solution on this black cardstock) then carefully and slowly blew the air in the direction I wanted to form the flower petals. I wish I could find the video that inspired me, but I can't!!
The next step is to add some color to the flowers. I added just a few drops of color along with a few drops of alcohol and blew it gently. I repeated the process till I was satisfied.
I added stems easily with the white fixative ink. Placing a few drops of ink and alcohol on to my glass mat, I used a silicone spatula to create the stems and leaves.
I used the Fairy Words stamp to add some interest to the background. I placed several drops of the Snow Cap fixative ink and alcohol onto my glass mat, smeared the stamp through the ink and placed on to the cardstock. You must work quickly since the alcohol ink dries fast! Clean your stamp with alcohol first then a bit of water.
Lastly for some added interest I used Versamark ink to stamp Those Who Believe in Magic , embossed with fine white powder, and heat set. I backed it with a piece of the black cardstock and a piece of Brutus Monroe Not Your Mama's Cardstock.
