Alcohol Ink Backgrounds With Altenew Marker Re-Inkers

By | 10/15/2019

Here is one more quick card to share with you using the Altenew Artist Marker Re-Inkers on Yupo paper.

I used some rubbing alcohol, the Ruby Red, Warm Sunshine, and Desert Night reinkers on the Yupo paper and dabbed the excess off with a microfiber cloth.  This gave some fun texture.

Once this dried, I used the Atlenew Bubble Wrap stencil and a Tim Holtz foam blender with rubbing alcohol to stencil a small section of the paper.

Quick and fun technique.

I picked a couple of small squares to work with this week’s Paper Craft Crew sketch.  I added a scrap of patterned paper, some sequins and a couple sentiment strips from Tim Holtz Idea-ology line of products.

I really like how the card came out.  These backgrounds never come out the same way twice.  I had a lot of fun experimenting with the microfiber cloth and the stencil to see what kind of effect I could actually get.

I love it!  Perfect for a mixed media journal or a scrapbook background.  It’s on my future project list.

Those sentiment strips made for a quick card as well and they worked perfectly with this week’s Paper Craft Crew Sketch.Altenew alcohol re-inkers for card backgrounds with stencil technique
