Hello dear stampers…today I have a card with a new technique to me. A fellow demo, Robin Daus, demonstrated it for us at one of our team meetings. I love it! Some of you may already have seen the alcohol background technique but here’s my version.
I used Night of Navy and Soft Sky re-inkers.
Sorry about the poor quality – it was a rainy day and I guess I didn’t focus well. Couldn’t redo it since I’d already sent the card. Oh dear!
Here’s how easy it is to do this and every time you do it…the result is different!
Be sure to use Glossy White Paper
1. Saturate a cotton ball with rubbing alcohol.
2. Take two complimentary colors (re-inkers) and put 4 drops (or less if really dark) of the darker color and 5 drops of the lighter color.
3. Bounce the cotton ball randomly around the glossy white paper close together.
4. Use an old t-shirt to blot the excess or let dry then shine it a bit.
Tip…use the same cotton ball again and see how different the pattern is.
