Double stamping Alcohol Ink Technique

For those of you who like the alcohol ink technique , here it is in more detail.
Take an ATC size ( 2.5 x 3.5 inch ) piece of Glossy Card, and using three colours on your alcohol ink tool, add a little bit of blender to lighten the colours. I used Stream Wild Plum and Eggplant Ink onto the card,

and then using Archival Black ink, (this is the best ink to use)stamp your words or music directly over the ink. Then taking one of the nudes , or a stamp with a large area which remains un-inked , stamp directly over the words and background. Double inking technique accomplished! So easy and so effective.This is another one using the same technique.

Happy Inking!

Wow! That's a great little tutorial, now I can have really good play with mine, just got these inks so am still in the 'learning process',lol, but I MUST invest in those 'nudes' stamps though.

Thanks for the 'info'

Hi love the tutorial, I have the inks and the tool just need the blending solutions, I seem to have changed my technique recently, must get back to messy crafting, I call it this because usually I end up with more on my hands.
