Thanks (with Alcohol Inks)
Seems like I'm all about the alcohol inks lately, doesn't it? Playing with them is so much fun and it's only going to get better when my Pinata Brass ink gets here!!
I did not make a video for this one, but I followed the same process as yesterday's video, but I kept the colours closer to the centre of the panel, rather than all over.
I was really just playing with different colours, trying to get a feel for how much ink and how much blending solution is needed. I started with Pool and Limeade, then added Sunflower, Indigo and Purple Twilight to create a colour progression, and seeing how well they blend. The answer is 'not perfectly', but there are definitely some interesting results.
To finish the card, I trimmed the panel with a Pretty Pink Posh stitched rectangle and cut out a Concord & 9th Thanks. I backed the panel onto a black card base and added some Midnight Black Pretty Pink Posh jewels.
