This posed me a problem as there are so many things I want to try out but I finally settled on the Alcohol Ink Faux Bleach Technique. I found an excellent Splitcoast Stampers tutorial for this which you can find here.
As usual there are some questions which have to be answered and included in the challenge.
1. Why did you want to try this technique? I have had a box of Alcohol inks sat in my stash ever since Fluff gave them to me when I first started my blog. Sadly never used and every time I open the draw they are in they plead with me to be brought out and played with and at last I decided yes indeed why not!
2. What has been your experience with the technique? Undoubtedly that less haste is more speed. You do need to make sure that you iron over the sheet for long enough for the resist to work and then give it time to dry off before you attempt to stamp over it. Both things I did not do the first time round so this card is my second attempt at getting it right.
Alcohol Ink colours used. Cranberry, Butterscotch, Caramel.
Plain card from my stash along with ribbon and Gems.
Stamp used for reist 'Brocade' by Wow.
Other stamps by Hot Off The Press, freebies from Simply cards and Papercraft magazine.
When you do this technique you end up with a positive on glossy card and a negative on plain card.
I have chosen to use the negative as I liked the colour combination more.
