Alcohol Inks on Acetate Cards

Hi, friends, it’s Chark here today with a fun and colorful technique that I enjoy creating. I used Tim Holtz alcohol inks in bottles to ink up the Hero Arts clear acetate notecards. I dripped the inks onto the cards without using an applicator or heat tool to dry and just let the ink do whatever it wanted…that’s the fun part!

After they dried, I trimmed the panels down, used the Hero Arts So Sorry stamp and cut hearts and then adhered the panels to a white notecard and music paper I had.

On this card, I wrote the words “love” and “you” on the card in a loopy, loose way. You could use some writing stamps or washi tape, but I wanted to try some handwriting.

On this card, I used the large heart die cut, and backed it with some music paper I had. You could use a song that means something to your valentine, but in this case, I used what I had and left out any lyrics.

These are fun to make, and I have several more card panels that are all dripped and painted and ready to go for another project. Keep in mind that alcohol inks stain, so don’t get too wild when you’re using them 🙂

And also the silver or gold alcohol inks are less translucent than the colors, so use them sparingly with the colors, as they tend to reverse the stained glass effect.

Thanks for stopping by, hope you’ll enter our February challenge here, and maybe you’ll win the $25 gift code to the store!
