Played around with a fun technique today using alcohol ink/reinkers and hand sanitizer. I used glossy paper for maximum spreading. I started out with Adirondak Meadow only and covered my whole piece.
|My next step was to use Adirondak Pearl dripped on randomly.|
|I wanted the colors to be nice and deep so I dropped some more Meadown on over the pearl while it was still mostly wet.|
|Here's where the fun starts with the hand sanitizer. I took the wood end of my paintbrush and dipped it into hand sanitizer then dropped on circles of the gel and also made some veining.|
|After I dried it, I decided to try some home made shimmer spray which is rubbing alcohol and shimmer ink. I thought it was pretty, but muted the colors more than I wanted so I ended up dropping on some more Meadow to deepen the green again.|
|I took my Gelly Roll Clear Star pen to add highlights around the background~terrible picture of the colors, but you can see the shimmer.|
|Here's the final card with some Indigo framing and a pretty corner piece that was a RAK from a splitcoast friend. I embossed the sentiment in clear ep using Versamark then Garden Green inks.|
