Alcohol Ink Faux Bleach Technique w Sneak PEEK!

Today I am offering both a technique and a sneak peek!

The peek is for a new stamp set to be introduced next
week by Mark's Finest Papers titled
"Just Dandy"
and the technique is called
Alcohol Ink Faux Bleach.

Supplies: Alcohol re-inkers (2 or 3 colors) Optional: Alcohol ink blending solution Ink applicator w/felt Versamark pad Clear embossing powder Heat tool Iron Glossy cardstock Paper towels White cardstock
Stamps of choice Directions: 1) Stamp image on glossy stock with Versamark and emboss with clear embossing powder, heat set. 2) Apply alcohol re-inkers and blending solution to felt pad on applicator tool and dab over glossy. 3) Lay onto paper towel with piece of white paper on top and iron until embossing melts onto paper. 4) Buff image with paper towel to remove all traces of embossing powder.

5) Trim, mat and embellish as desired. My sample uses stamps by Mark's Finest Papers (a sneak PEEK from a new set being introduced next week titled "Just Dandy") and SpellBinders die "Ribbon Tags Trio". The tag was airbrushed with Copic markers. I also used some Metallic Mixatives (gold) with the alcohol inks.

Be sure to mark (get it?) your calendars for next week's blog hop with
the Mark's Finest Papers team for some awesome new
sets and some awesome samples and prizes!

Please comment and let me know what you think?
