Painting with Alcohol inks






I love swishing my aquabrush with pretty alcohol inks across acetate. I find this technique not to be a precision painting style but rather lends itself to relaxing and playful creative time. This one I had fun experimenting by adding playful dots.


I used parts of background stamps for both of these images. I had fun adding stickles behind the alcohol ink for a set of ATCs.

  10. I love both of these for different reasons. The one with berries is so graceful and beautiful--love the colors. I also love the fun of the circles card; and the pierced circle and twine on that one adds a great touch.
