VIDEO | Can Alcohol Inks Be Clean & Simple?

Hello there, today I have two tags and a video to share with you using Altenew Alcohol Inks in a clean and simple way. Obviously, alcohol inks are a messy medium. There are no two ways about it but you can use them in a clean and simple way design wise.

I started off by die cutting four tags using the Altenew Terrific Tags Die Set. Two from Heavyweight Yupo Paper for the fronts and two from Classic Crest 110lb Solar White for the backs. On to the Yupo pieces, I added Altenew Alcohol Inks. These are the same as what you would use to refill your Artist Markers but today, I am simply using them direct from the bottle. 

For the first tag, I used pinks - Razzleberry, Rubellite and Pink Diamond. I moved the inks around with a Tim Holtz Alcohol Ink Air Blower. I wanted to keep them fairly vibrant and with harsh edges so I did not use much Isopropyl Alcohol to blend them. I also left white space on the tag. 

For the blue tag, I used blues - Desert Night, Dusk, Ocean Waves and Sea Glass. For this tag, I wanted a more blended look, so I added a layer of Isopropyl Alcohol first to get the inks moving and blending. I ended up losing a lot of the white space on this tag, but I still like how it turned out. 

The tags were left to dry while I worked on the focal point. I took the leaves dies from the Altenew Decorative Swirls Die Set and cut them each three times from white cardstock. I layered them up with Altenew 2 in 1 Precision Glue Pen and added them to the tags. The sentiments were stamped from the Altenew Flower Vine Stamp Set on to black cardstock with Altenew Embossing Ink.

I applied Altenew Pure White Crisp Embossing Powder and heat set. They were then cut in to strips using the Altenew Sentiment Banners Cover Die and added to the tags with Altenew Instant Dimension Foam Tape. To finish off, I added twine through the top of the tags and Raindrops around the leaves. 


Here is the video showing how I made the tags:
