Been having a play with the cuttlebug and coke cans and experimenting with making my own alcohol inks, and had a whale of a time making my fingers very mucky!!
You know how much I like stampin up ink pads, I have the full colour range, for which you can get reinkers so now use the matched card and ink pad but fancied having a go with coke cans and alcohol inks so I bought a Tim Holtz alcohol ink to see what form of alcohol they use and after a bit of research found that the nail sanitiser which I use for my day job as a nail technician is basically the same stuff and at 1 litre for a few quid just had to have a go. Have mixed in silk painting dye, TH reinkers, SU reinkers and added cosmic shimmer powder and it all works brilliantly, just add more ink for a stronger colour. The nail santiser also acts as a blender although a slightly different alcohol would perhaps work better - needs a little more experimentation. I have little 10ml dropper bottles to put the alcohol inks in and dispense a drop at a time onto my felt.
So armed with my inks, a few coke cans and cuttlebug this is what I dun!
Off to play some more.
