Foil and Alcohol Inks

Another fabulous challenge for Our Creative Corner this week from Sue at Scrumplescrunch:

The technique of dripping Alcohol Inks onto Foil has an amazing effect. 
The item you make can be anything; a free standing decoration,  or an element to place onto your project, experiment and have some fun, it is getting close to the silly season, so why not let go and free all those inhibitions and let rip with some colour!
I decided not to do Christmas again this week, but did I have fun with the foil and alcohol inks!  Once I am unpacked after my move I will most certainly be playing with this one again 🙂  Thank Sue!
I have die cut the flowers out of a backed foil and then dripped the different colours of alcohol ink onto the foils, adding more colour once the first colour was dry, if I thought it needed more variation.
Here is a closer look at the flowers:
Well, I hope you are all getting lots of crafting time in.  I am looking forward to being able to unpack all my precious stamps and equipment and getting back into it.  But in the meantime, why don’t you check out all the creative and gorgeous inspiration from the very talented Design Team at Our Creative Corner.
Happy stamping!

  2. I love this technique and have never heard of it before. However, not sure what foil is used. Plain Reynolds foil? You said foil backed. Please, can you email me exactly what foil you used. LOVE, LOVE this. Thanks. Judy

    • Hi Judy, sorry it has taken me so long to reply. I have used Foil Tape Sheets which are from Ranger Ink. All I can suggest is having a go at different foils to see what results you get, that’s half the fun!
