Craft Hoarder...me???? NO way! I'd rather say I am a Craft COLLECTOR of fine things. Yes, it is true, I have a "few" supplies. I took pictures to show you, but after reviewing, I have decided to save that for another day when I am a little braver. Let's just put it this way 15+ years of scrapbooking, card making, mixed media, crochet, embroidery, the list goes on and on........I think you get the picture.
So, on to today. The challenge to get messy is not that much of a stress for me. I have NO problem with that. As a matter of fact, I think I will be rockin alcohol ink nail polish for quite some time after this project!
I made it my goal to get rid of something I don't use anymore and make it something I do use. I decided on alcohol inks, alcohol ink pads, photo paper (just some cheap old stuff) and kraft glassine paper which didn't make its way into this project in the end but you will see it in a future post.
**Disclaimer here: I ended up working with alcohol inks for FOUR hours straight determined to use EVERY last drop of what I had. I tried tons of different things and this one here is the last thing I tried.
Alcohol inks...never been quite a fan, but I did manage to buy EVERY color--well OF COURSE I did. I took a piece of 8.5" x 11" photo paper, used an applicator and applied the ink as well as just using it out of the bottle.
After I was done, I laid four of my new Doodle It designs from StencilGirl onto of the ink. Doodle It Blossom, Doodle It Layered Petals, Doodle It Daisy and Doodle It Rose. It was basically dry at this point.
I then took orange, pink, red and yellow and dripped them into the stencil. Amazingly enough, the stencil held the ink in, it was pretty fun to watch.
I left the stencil in place while it dried, maybe 5 minutes total.
Then....I lifted the stencil which gave me a wonderful reverse technique.
and the final results......in case you were wondering, YES!!!! I used every last drop of 20 bottles of alcohol ink in my four hour play. GONE! YAY!!
