Craft club using alcohol inks

I had a request to do some techniques with Ranger alcohol inks, its been years since I have last used them and was amazed I had so many!

First card uses alcohol inks on the back of acetate. I used a mixture of inks with blending solution and silver metallic ink. The teasels are a new stamp from Woodware. After I had made the card I added some fine lines using Cosmic Shimmer glue and a fine tip and then sprinkled glitter on top.

Products used:
Stamps: Teasels and sentiment from Woodware
Alcohol inks: Denim, Eggplant, Stonewash, Silver
Inks: Black Stazon
Extras: EK Success punch, Acetate, Glitter

The second card uses a different technique using alcohol ink on some cut and dry foam with blending solution and dragging it across glossy card. I also added some pearl alcohol ink on the foam and then stamped the Inkylicious butterfly stamp over the top.

Products used:
Stamps: Inkylicious Butterfly, Paula Pascual sentiment
Punch/die: Die'sire Elegance frame, EK Success punch
Alcohol Inks: Terracotta, Cranberry, Pearl, Blending solution
Extras: Glossy card, pearls, cut n dry foam
Back tomorrow with some glitter cards
