Hello everyone, I hope you are doing well.
I finally succumbed and bought alcohol inks. I've resisted for a long time because I have so many other mediums but after seeing amazing designs at Marja's, Alie's & Maria's Blogs, and Pinterest I had to buy some.
I'm enjoying playing with them but I'm having trouble stamping over the glossy papers without smearing the ink. On the design below I used glossy cardstock, but I have also had fun trying landscapes on Yuppo (plastic coated watercolour paper).
If you have experience with alcohol inks and can give me tips on what inks
stamp without smearing (or how) on Yuppo & Glossy paper I would greatly appreciate it. I've
tried Dye, Stazon & Archival Inks, probably Archival works best. I used Dye ink on the card below and was able to rub off any images
that didn't come out sharp.
I ended up doodling with a black Pigment Pen over the alcohol ink background as I could 'see' flowers in it. I also stamped a little with Design by Ryn's famous Water Droplets. I highlighted with a white Gellyroll pen and added some liquid pearls to some flower centers. Hello is from Impression Obsession (A3579) - a favorite little sentiment.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day,
