Alcohol Inks!

Finally! I have been trying to post this forever, but silly me forgot to charge the rechargeable batteries, so my camera was pretty useless!
My friend Victoria did an amazing tutorial on Alcohol Inks today and posted it on her blog, Eat, Stamp, Sleep, Repeat.

Now, somehow I have no blending solution, so my background looks a bit different than hers, but I quite like it! I used Latte, Lettuce, and Ginger inks (all purchased at Pez-a-Doodle Designs - she has an amazing selection!) to make it. I followed everything she said with the exception of adding the blending solution to it.

My stamps are from SU - the set is called Sense of Time and I also used the Sanded background, but I'm not sure if you can tell in the picture. My only embellishments are Pez-a-Blings, available at Pez-a-Doodle Designs.

This is beautiful! I like seeing the difference of no blending and blending.

Hi Taylor,

I'm Jeanette and I'm on the DT at CowTown. Laurel
said you'd be joining us. Welcome. I'm looking forward to knowing you better. We already have
something in common, besides stamping, Johnny Dep.
I'm so glad to have you with us.

I just saw your card on Christian Papercrafts and had to pop over to comment. It looks wonderful. I love how there are pieces of white showing through the background - i was just playing with my inks yesterday and always cover the whole thing. Yours looks so much better. Thanks for the inspiration!
