Dotty About Alcohol Inks


Cooooooeeeeeey!
Me again....with another alcohol ink creation.
I started this one by simply drizzling blending solution across my piece of 4.5"x4.5" piece of Yupo. I used the heavier weight 200gsm version as I wanted to run it thru' my Cuttlebug at the end.


I added streaks of Raspberry & Purple Twilight and puffed the colours about with my TH air spritzer until dry.


I should have called it a day at this point but oh no...stoooopid me got carried away, added more ink and ruined it....Grrrrr....


Even my toothbrush-ink-flicking went wrong....more Grrrrs!


But I followed my own advice and left it for a couple of days to see if it could be salvaged. 


I used my alcohol ink pen, filled with blending solution, to apply small dots of liquid and soon fell in love again with my disaster.


I used MFT's Stitched Inside & Out Square STAX to give the Yupo an elegant edge and added a silver, glittered, die-cut, birthday sentiment from Clearly Besotted.
I'm so glad I didn't ditch this.

Breathtaking - wanted to pull my alcohol inks out tonight and then I got distracted .... I don't think I can create anything even close to this - fabulous!!!!

Just fabulous Jane, the patterns are brilliant and what colours.
I bet this is how Jackson Pollock started out and look at him now, never know where your patterns can lead, the Guggenheim perhaps, Kate x

Drop dead gorgeous. You seem to place those alcohol dots in just the most perfect spots to create this incredible card.

LOVE what you are doing with alcohol inks! And I agree, the "let it sit for awhile and come back to it" is a never-fail strategy.
