I used this technique in yesterday’s tutorial and I found it to be fairly quick and easy, but still has a great wow factor. Here is another tutorial on alcohol inks and transparency film.
|Stamps: Stampin’ Up Wonderful Wings and Toile Blossoms|
|Paper: Old Olive, Basic Grey Design Paper|
|Ink: Adirondack Alcohol Inks Butterscotch, Caramel, Latte, Lettuce and Stream, Stazon Black|
|Accessories: Alcohol Blending Solution, Aqua Brush, Brads, Transparency Film, Ribbon, Styrofoam Plate, Piercing Tool|
Started out with a 5″x 5″ piece of transparency film and Basic Gray Designer paper.
Stamped Butterfly and flowers using Stazon Black ink. Keep in mind that your finished image will be reversed in this technique.
Let the ink dry and then I flipped the transparency over, ink side down onto the Design paper.
Put about an inch of Alcohol Blending Solution in an Aqua brush.
Put a few drops of Lettuce Alcohol Ink on a Styrofoam plate and picked the color up with the Aqua brush and painted the leaves very loosely. I’m painting on the side that does not have the Black Stazon on it.
Painted the inside of the flower petals loosely with Caramel Alcohol ink.
Painted the outside of the flower petals and buds loosely with Latte Alcohol ink.
Painted the inside of the butterfly wings with Butterscotch Alcohol ink.
Painted the outsides of the butterfly wings with Stream Alcohol ink.
Note: if you get a bit of ink some where that you don’t want it. Clean your brush and just use the alcohol filled aqua brush to whisk it away.
The butterfly was too bright for my liking so I tone it down with Caramel Alcohol ink.
Assembled card using brads to hold the transparency film in place on the card front.
