Creative Chemistry 102 - Day 4 - Alcohol inks

It's a gorgeous fall day so the windows are wide open so I don't fall into a drunken stupor while playing with the alcohol inks and blending solution.  You definitely need good ventilation when using these products!

The one technique I used more blending solution than I should have but I actually like the results but I'll know better for next time.  Less really is more.

Here are the ingredients I used but not in any particular order.

*Stencils:  Burlap, Schoolhouse
*Alcohol inks:  Butterscotch, Caramel, Latte, Meadow, Stonewashed, Sunshine Yellow, Sailboat Blue, Raspberry, Gold Mixative, Peach Bellini, Sunset Orange, Terra Cotta
*Stamp sets:  Attic Treasures, Mini Holidays, School Desk, Captured Moments, Artful Flight, Lost & Found, Papillon, Mini Halloween 2, Warehouse District, Worn Text
*Archival inks:  Jet Black, Monarch Orange, Saffron, Watering Can, Cornflower Blue, Potting Soil, Red Geranium, Orange Blossom
*Adirondack ink:  Slate
*Watermark resist ink
*Distress inks:  Tea Dye, Weathered Wood
*Distress stains: Shaded Lilac, Tumbled Glass, Weathered Wood
*Idea-ology:  tinsel twine, adornments, fragment

If you haven't looked into taking this amazing class, please do so.  The price is right, the material will always be available for review and referral, there is a student gallery and a forum for questions and discussion.  You do need Creative Chemistry 101 as a prerequisite but again, you won't be sorry!

  1. The greenish Paris butterfly in this round of pretties! I got my alcohol inks out again last week. The lady that first shared them with me was diagnosed with cancer and I needed to make her a card with what she got me into. Do you have any good notions to keep the metallic alcohol inks working? Mine have separated and I hate the thought of tossing them {sigh}. nise
