Vintage Tag

My friend Sarah shared an amazing tag she made yesterday using a cool technique with alcohol inks and stamping with the blender solution. I had to give it a try and this is the result.
I used glossy cardstock for my tag. I added Butterscotch and Meadow alcohol inks to the
cardstock with no blender solution. When it was dry I applied the blender solution to my applicator and "inked" up my alphabet stamp (Hampton Arts) and then stamped it over the alcohol inks.
It's a subtle effect, but I like it a lot!

This is really cool! Another idea for using those pricey alcohol inks I have sitting in my space needing a good dusting. Thanks for sharing, Louise.
