I hope you are having a great day! Today, I have a brand new video for you featuring the Tim Holtz Alcohol Inks and my Fancy Foil by Gina K. Designs and ThermOWeb.
I must have been one of the last crafters on earth who hadn’t played with this ink. And if you are in that camp too, you can try it for a very small investment.
The other product you need is some sort of shiny or slick card stock. I chose to use the YUPO paper but some people use plain on glossy card stock. I am not sure if Glossy Photo Paper works. I tried it once a long time ago when doing the Polished Stone Technique but it wasn’t quite as good as card stock made for paper crafting.
There is no right or wrong way to apply the ink to your card stock. You can drip it right on, use the applicator, add blending solution and watch what happens! Each time it looks different and you can keep playing with it until you get it to look the way you want it to look.
Here is what mine looked like right before I added the foil.
And here is the finished card.

White Layer- 3 1/8″ X 5 1/8″

Although we don’t carry Alcohol Inks, our friends at Simon Says Stamp have them and they are celebrating their 17th anniversary with a sale!! I couldn’t resist sharing it with you. So very proud of my friend Heidi and all that she has accomplished!
I hope you enjoy today’s inspiration and Happy Stamping!
