Colouring Tutorial : Alcohol Backgrounds!


Hi everyone! I'm popping to today to share a fun little video tutorial with you all on creating simple Alcohol Ink Backgrounds! You can use this technique with any image to create some visual interest and it works great on stand-alone colouring pieces or as backgrounds for your colouring and cardmaking projects.

Materials used

- Selection of Alcohol Inks
These can be any brand and in any colour but I've used my Copic Various Ink Refills in colours B99, B91, BG01, and BV02. Try to pick a dark and light base colour (I've used a dark and light blue) with a few brighter accents as a good starting background
- Rubbing Alcohol 
I've used Isocol which is 100% Isopropyl. You can use your Colourless Blender Fluid if you have this.
- Small egg cup or bowl to put the rubbing alcohol in
- White Gel or Paint pen, or a small paint brush and white paint

The image I've used here is Smells Like First Snow by The East Wind - isn't she gorgeous for your Winter/Christmas projects! :D As part of our Advent Calendar of Giveaways in our Facebook Group, today you can receive 35% off all stamps from The East Wind store using coupon code KNCADVENT2016 *Valid until December 31

I tried all my possible means to get him back,after much begging,but all to no avail.and he confirmed it that he has made his decision,and he never wanted to see me again. So on one evening,as i was coming back from work,i met an old friend of mine who asked of my husband .So i explained every thing to him,so he told me that the only way i can get my husband back,is to visit a spell caster,because it has really worked for him too.So i never believed in spell,but i had no other choice,than to follow his advice. Then he gave me the email address of the spell caster whom he visited. I sent a mail to the address he gave to me,and the spell caster assured me that i will get my husband back the next day. What an amazing statement!! I never believed,so he spoke with me, and told me everything that i need to do.
