Alcohol Inks

With the resurgence of vintage artwwork, I have lately become interested in all the different products made by Ranger Ink. This morning I put together two small gift cards using three alcohol inks.
Both cards are made with the same inks - Lettuce, Eggplant, and Cranberry. I made one lighter by using a little more blending solution. Other products used are Bazzill flowers, CTMH rub-ons, and random ribbon from my stash. Pretty little cards!

If you'd like to learn this technique, I am offering you this link. In this video, Tim Holtz leads the correct way in applying alcohol inks. You will never regret hopping over to Ranger and learning some new things. I have absolutely loved gaining some new paper crafting knowledge through all of these fabulous videos!!

Edit on 3/1: These cards fit into the Practical Scrappers challenge this week - using inks/chalks.
