Playing with Alcohol Inks and My Favorite Things Magical Unicorns.

Good morning all.  Are you having a good Tuesday.   I'm getting ready for a workathon, from today for the rest of the week I'm working a seven and a half hour day and then I'll be doing another two and a half hours overtime on top of that, so no time for crafting this week I'll definitely be too tired when I get home after my ten hour days....

Luckily I had sometime at the weekend to have play with my alcohol inks so over the coming weeks I have a few cards to share that I made with the results.  I've never really embraced alcohol inks so I thought it was time to give them a whirl instead of them just languishing in a drawer.

For this card I tried a technique that uses alcohol hand sanitiser along with the alcohol inks.

I coated glossy card with hand sanitiser and then added some drops of alcohol inks, I knew I wanted a rainbow effect so just used four colours and blended to get the other rainbow hues.  When the alcohol inks had been added just used my finger to mix them into the hand sanitiser and blended them where I wanted the orange & green then allowed to air dry (don't use a heat tool due to the fumes that it creates).

When it was dry I mounted it onto a 6"x4" card.  The unicorns are from the My Favorite Things Magical Unicorns set.  These were stamped with Memento London Fog ink and coloured with copics.   The sentiment was stamped and embossed in white.

Just a few dots of 3D liquid enamel effects to finish.

Bit of a change for me getting so messy but I quite liked it.  Thanks for taking the time to stop by my blog and I'll see you soon....
