It is cold.
My son is in bed with a fever.
My husband had to go to work for a few hours.
A perfect afternoon for me and my girl to play with alcohol inks.
I bought a few alcohol inks by mistake.
Thought... why not buy more colors along with the recommended tools
and see the error as a delight in disguise?
Bea and I cut some shiny paper into bookmark-sized rectangles
and proceeded to make a huge mess.
Now we are in love with these inks.
Not sure what we will do with these,
but they have a Hubble Telescope Photo kind of allure.
We can't stop looking at them.
Product Info: These inks are Ranger Adirondack. You can buy them at big craft stores here in the U.S. or you can buy them on Amazon.com. These are the colors and supplies I used:
Ink Colors (these came in packs of three):
Sail Boat Blue
Metallic Mixatives (came in a pack of two):
Alcohol Blending Solution
Applicator and pads (This is a wooden velcro-covered stamp with a stack of felt rectangles. You apply the ink to the felt and stamp the color onto the surface. Toss the felt and start with a fresh one when you change colors. You can buy more felt rectangles, but I am just going to use craft felt that I have on hand and cut my own.)
