Compressed Air and Alcohol Ink Backgrounds

I'm up on the Clear Scrap Blog today with this winter layout using compressed air and alcohol inks.

  1. Remove protective film from Clear Scrap acrylic. 
  2. Drip alcohol ink onto acrylic.
  3. Hit with a blast of air from compressed air can and watch the alcohol ink spread out. 
  4. Continue to add drips of alcohol ink and blasts of air. Fill the acrylic with color. You can also experiment with adding drops of blending solution over some of the alcohol ink background.  

This snowman pair from Stampendous is so stinkin' cute, but the image of the two of them together was too large so I cut it apart. By having the one peeking around the corner of the photo, I could hide the cut lines in the image. 

Supplies Used:
Clear Scraps (XL Deco Shape), Stampendous stamps(Jumbo Snowman Pair retired, Halo Glitter), Ranger Alcohol Ink (Citrus, Sailboat Blue and Stream), Tsukineko (Memento), Spectrum Noir markers
