Trying Alcohol Inks | Winter Coffee Lovers Hop


All the cool kids are doing it so I figured I might as well jump on the alcohol ink bandwagon. 
I remember alcohol inks being popular a long time ago, but it just didn't appeal to me, but with all the new techniques, wow! So I've been playing with some of Jennifer McGuires techniques from her blog post here, and this was the first card I came up with.

I started with some ranger glossy cardstock, and heat embossed a snowflake background using a homemade stencil from the Hero Arts snowflake confetti die. I was going to an emboss resist technique, but wasn't sure if it would work. You have to work very quickly to wipe the ink of the embossing, it does not resist naturally (at least this particular embossing powder), but some of it did resist/lighten the ink, creating a multi-tone background.

 Now following a sketch from the My Favorite Things weekly challenge, I die cut two pierced circles and used them to stamp my images and sentiment. I wrapped some twine around my background panel, before adhering my die cuts on with foam tape, and fastening the whole panel down to an a2 sized note card and adding a bow!
