Alcohol Ink Made Easy

Alcohol ink blending for backgrounds doesn’t get any easier than this.

All of the cards shown here and in the video (link below) were made with three ink colors, a metallic mixative, and alcohol blending solution. No fancy tools, very few supplies and… BOOM! Tiny pieces of art.

I used Ranger’s alcohol ink blending tools and foam, some metallic and black paper, heavy card stock, and a little silver and gold embossing powder to create these beautiful cards. I’ve listed all of the supplies used in this project below.

Each card is a unique work of art and would be cherished by any recipient. Plus, they are super quick and require no previous experience using alcohol inks.

Of course, these backgrounds can be used for endless card layouts, but I love quick and simple. Especially when making sets like I do. Take a peek at the video to see how easy it really is.
