Alcohol Inks and Watercolor Paper?? I was a bit skeptical to be honest. But since Jennifer McGuire's technique classes had never led me astray before, I gave it a try. You can too by following that link over to the class at 2peas. Anyway, I wondered what would be the worst that would happen if I didn't like the results...another paper would end up in the recycable bag...no loss there. So I cut my watercolor paper to size, chose my ink colors, and loaded up the felt applicator. The result I got was AMAYZING!! I actually think I preferr alcohol inks on watercolor paper to glossy paper...hands down!! Oh wait, I forgot a step...I did do some heat embossing with white embossing powder before using those alcohol inks...just like Jennifer did. Anyway, I figure I should get around to showing you my results!!
I will be back tomorrow with my latest creation for the Papertrey Playhouse Challenge!! Single Layer Cards...LOVE them!! Until then, thanks for stopping by!!
