Alcohol Inks are new medium to me and I am still learning how to use them on my project. I searched some tutorials and ideas on Pinterests and watched severals videos on YouTube, too. And I decided to try them.
I created some background on the other day using Ranger glossy cardstocks and also I tried them on HP Glossy photo papers. The results were vary and interesting. I still want to make more of these panels with mixing colors that I have right now 🙂 I made a card with one of the background panels that I created, you can check it out here.
Today, I wanna share with you… these alcohol ink ornaments. I saw a YouTube video and the lady said that alcohol inks will work on any non-porous surfaces including plastic, ceramic, glass, etc. So, I decided to try them in glass ornaments.
When we went to grocery shopping, I grabbed a box of these plain metalic ivory/milky white ornaments. And I did some experiments on them. I simply added the alcohol inks on the aplicator and then I added the Blending Solution, then simply tapped it on the ornament all around it until all surface covered.
I did on 3 ornaments this time. I let them sit on apple sauce cups for about half hour to make sure they dried completely. After that, I hand-wrote and hand-drew on each of them with White Painters marker.
They are my first mixed medai ornament! I love the texture and interesting backgrounds from the mixing of colors from the alcohol inks. And I’ll make more! 🙂
I hope this can give you some ideas what to create with Alcohol Inks to play along with the Happy Little Stampers – Mixed Media Challenge this month. Check out more inspirations from the team on the blog and link up your project for a chance to win a gift card from the sponsor, Happy Little Stampers.
