Alcohol Ink Valentines

A fun way to apply alcohol inks!



My camera's battery died before I could show you that I used Picked Raspberry Distress Ink on the embossed areas as well as the entire surface. Then I applied Fired Brick Distress Ink around the border of the paper and finally Black Soot Distress Ink on the card edges and in a smaller area around the Fired Brick boarder to frame the design.
Here are some pictures:

Oh Cindi...you have really outdone yourself on this one! I never thought about layering on so many colors with the alcohol ink with the Ranger paper. The affect is absolutely beautiful! I may do this on 2 sheets but contrasting colors and then use one sheet to cut out hearts to mount on the card. Can I use Glossy accents over the alcohol ink?

Also, where did you get the stamp mounts with the handle? They sure look easier to use with old hands like mine.

Big smiles,
Jenny

I'm pretty sure you can use the glossy accents over alcohol ink. I got the stamp mount at a show in Tennesee, I'll try to find out the vendor for you! Show me what you make!
