Just Add Ink # 275 – Sketch Challenge

August 13, 2015 at 10:27 pm 4 comments

We have a sketch challenge at Just Add Ink this week.  It’s a fairly simple sketch so there are lots and lots that you can do with it.
JAISketch_2011275A couple of weeks ago, I made some Alcohol Ink background sheets to use in a class and a few people commented that they had not used that technique before – so I decided it was time we revisited the technique.

I used the technique on this weeks Challenge card.DSC00012I am sure there are many many wonderful things you can do with this sketch.  We love you to join our challenge and share your projects with us at Just Add Ink.  While you are there, you can check out all the great Design Team projects too.

 

Below is a copy of the tutorial I did on the technique in 2010 for the Just Add Ink first ever Blog Hop (13 May 2010).

 

The Technique I am showing you today is the Ink & Alcohol Technique

Using Re-inkers, Isocol Alcohol, Glossy White Card and a Cotton Ball you can create funky and unique Backgrounds.

Step One – Squeeze some Isocol Alcohol (which you can buy from your Supermarket or Pharmacy) onto a Cotton Ball.  Add some dots of Ink from your reinker onto the cotton ball.  You can use several colours.

Step Two – Dab the ink onto Glossy White Card.  It dries quickly – and you can go over the same area a couple of times if you wish.


This creates fabulous multi-coloured backgrounds which you can use on your projects.

Another option is to Stamp an image with Versamark and emboss it before covering with Alcohol Ink.


Once your Alcohol Ink has dried – polish off any excess ink with a Tissue.  This really makes the image stand out.

    I was trying to think what technique it was and now you’ve showed me how – which was just fabulous! Thanks Chantell. Makes a wonderfully fluid background for that special sparkly butterfly! xxx
