Hi everyone! It's my turn to host the project of the week over at The House That Stamps Built. Today I'm going to be doing an old technique but twisting it up with pigment inks.
First of all, gather your supplies. You will need:
2. Rubbing Alcohol (that is what is in the purple spray bottle below)
3. Cotton Balls/Pads
4. Glossy paper (I also tried this out on some photo printer paper that was glossy and it worked just fine.)
I did this on my craft mat so that I could go over the entire surface of the paper.
Using two of the colors in the container I randomly stamped it onto the glossy paper. Then I took cotton pad and saturated it with alcohol and blended it together. I tended to pounce the pad around instead of rubbing so that it wouldn't become a muddy mess.
Below is what I ended up with.
That's it, pretty easy and you don't need to drag out your alcohol inks do this either. I love the results you can get using the pigment inks you have on hand.
Thanks for stopping by!
