Alcohol Inks & Visible Image stamps

Alcohol inks have been hitting social media craft pages everywhere, but this is not a new product.  But with any product that comes back in style, there are always new techniques introduced.

While these may not be new to you, I had a lot of fun playing and experimenting with my inks.

If you would like to see my process video, you can click the link below. I had a lot of fun experimenting with my inks and I hope to give you some ideas. 

I love the colorful background that I was able to achieve using the alcohol inks and regular gloss card stock. I know that many people have used Yupo, but I have not tried that product as of yet. 

I stamped my card using black archival ink and used some black washi tape from Prima Marketing to help ground my image.  I then added some black texture paste.

The stamps I was using were from Visible Image and are clear Photopolymer stamps.  These can be a little tough to stamp on glossy paper, but it could have been simply because the stamps were knew and had  not been conditioned yet. 

After I finished working on my backgrounds, i created three cards. I had a lot of fun playing and just love how the backgrounds turned out.
