I have been paper crafting for over a decade now and I have seen so many techniques recycled over the years. It’s fun to revive something you learned long ago and give it new life and maybe a twist.
I have been using Tim Holtz Alcohol Inks for a long time. Almost 2 years ago now, i was recovering from surgery and stumbled across a technique for using Alcohol Inks in a very exciting way! I immediately [sent my mom] to the store to buy some photo paper with no writing on the back so we could start experimenting!
This is what happened…
Fast forward to today, I found some of my old samples and remembered how to do it! So I decided to play and I made these 2 cards.
These were both made using the same technique. I made a quick video for the blue whale card for those that just want to see how the technique is performed but don’t like a lot of talking. Here is the link to that video on my YouTube channel.
I also made a video for the pink card with the girl. I walk you through the steps in that video. Here is the link to that video on my YouTube channel.
Because I loved this technique so much and I wanted to see how it would respond to different types of paper…I made another video! Here is the link to that video. I demonstrated the technique again for those who didn’t watch the others and then i tried it on several different types of paper I use in everyday crafting. I used watercolor paper, Yupo, Kodak photo paper, glossy cardstock, and Neenah Solar White.
The results of the test…
I hope you get to try this technique and love it as much as I do! Please let me know what you think and share any samples you make using this technique with me on my Facebook page.
Peace and light to you.
