*Video: Stamping on Alcohol Inked Background

Learn how you can stamp on an Alcohol Inked background in today’s video tutorial.  This is Video 2 in my Alcohol Ink video series over on my youtube channel.  Let’s take a look at the video so you can see how I made this.  You can head over to my youtube channel and watch it in HD by clicking HERE. And if you aren’t a subscriber, I’d love it if you would subscribe by clicking HERE. The exact supplies used are linked below!

I am working on Yupo paper, which is a very slippery paper but perfect for alcohol inks. In the video, I share how I fixed a mistake when stamping onto the Yupo (the stamp slipped, ack…) I also misspoke in the video. The stamp set is from Concord & 9th!!! (I said Altenew in the video, sorry about that – hang head in shame). I always want to mention when working with alcohol inks, work in a well-ventilated area!!!! This is a MUST.

See? You can’t tell my image slipped when stamping can you? Yup. Thank you, Brutus Monroe embossing powder….. The Alcohol Inks I am using are the Jacquard Alcohol Inks, the Pinata Exciter Pack.  I love the bright, bold colors in this pack and the alcohol inks seem to be a wee bit thicker than some other brands. I am also using Patina Alcohol Ink from Ranger because the color is teal and hello, you know I love me some teal. You really can’t go wrong with either brand.


So there you have it! Video 2 in my alcohol inks series. I have such fun things and ideas in store for my video series. I already have my next one filmed, just need to do some editing. Think gilding flakes! Yep 🙂

    Gorgeous card Laurel (thanks for sharing the boo-boo so we could ALL learn from it!!) and I love the pop of B/W paper too. It always seems to add a little something special. I’ve been playing more and more with the alcohol inks (gloves are a MUST for my dried out, cracked hands!) and the look is always fun. QUESTION: What is the brand of your glass cutting mat? I like the look and size of it and since the new Tim Holtz one is actually geared towards right-handed folks with the palette on the right, I’d like to check out the one you were using. Thanks so much for sharing and I hope you’re having a great week. ~HUGS~

    I love Laurel what you are doing with the inks and alcohol at the moment. Love the stripes this video tutorial and then the added bonus of the beautiful floral stamp, which was saved by heat embossing with clear embossing powder. This is a technique I have not attempted as yet but I will be doing because I think it really makes a stamped image ‘pop’ on the ink back ground. Thank you for sharing this with us crafters. :O)
