A Day of Play


With Ranger Alcohol Inks....
I'm not sure if you have ever tried these, but oh my, they are GREAT!!! And, they have come out with new colors. Well, you know me, I got all of the new colors and played around with them....and this is what I have come up with so far.

I just love what you can do with these inks, and these backgrounds, can now be used in my art journals, collages, and even greeting cards....basically whatever you want.
I started with a 4x6 piece of glossy card stock, and picked no more than 3 colors of the inks....and just go for it. I was honestly like a "mad scientist" in my studio. The creations are endless. I encourage you to find them, and give them a try.
Hmmmm....maybe we should set up a swap????
Until next time,
Ophelia

Beea-uuu-tiful! It gives me an idea ... to use them on glossy paper like you've done, then scan and print them on fabric ... YUM!

Oh, no! These are beautiful. If you get a chance and have a Krylon metallic pen, put a few dabs of the metallic ink on the glossy cardstock and then use the inks. Blot with sponge, etc. This was the first thing I did with the inks and I was addicted. (I worked on the plastic torso forms and they worked in the same manner as glossy cardstock. You can see them here. http://www.jeannerhea.com/page29.htm ) We are going to have to start an Alcoholic INKS Anonymous group! I love alcohol inks as one can do so much with them.

OH-PHELIA!
These are incredible. You should sell laser copies. Matter of fact can I purchase a set of all four? Email me and let me know how much. You had a most successful playday!
