Playing with Alcohol Inks


Its been a while since I used my alcohol inks and it was great to get them into use again. I experimented with a few techniques on this piece. I put alcohol inks on glass and Tim Holtz Fragments and then a couple of pieces I stamped and embossed with gold ink. The background I made with glossy card and alcohol inks, then overstamped the flourishes and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Aurora Arctic Black embossing powder. Visit Tim's page to see more on alcohol inks
