Alcohol Ink

Today was my first time for me to play with alcohol inks. I have been admiring Tim Holtz work on his blag since last Dec. I have also watched all of his demos. But I had been resisting trying this stuff out for fear of getting addicted to something new lol But a friend keeps showing me these wonderful things that she has made. And I couldn't resist any longer. So I decided to try something easy first. I decided to star with Tim's Splatter technique. I used the same things that he uses in th demo. But I gave it a twist. Rather then using glossy cardstock, I used clear sheets that I had bought over a year ago ti stamp on. They worked out perfectly. These are sheets that you can run through printer, so one side is a bit textured. I used the alcohol ink on that side. Then stamped with Stazon on the smooth side. I then used a basic glue runner to attach my cardstock photo mats to the pages. I absolutely LOVE how they turned out!
