Altering Paper Flowers with Alcohol Inks

It occured to me that I could alter paper flowers with alcohol inks if I covered them with Glossy Accents first! And it worked and I love the effect.

I have also altered the chipboard letters in the same way. The application of Glossy Accents provides a barrier so the alcohol ink doesn’t soak through.

1.       Take some white paper flowers. Paper Flowers Snow (F601)

2.       Partially stamp some of the flowers with a script background clear stamp. Clear Stamp Script (CS752)

3.       Add a blob of Glossy Accents in the middle of each flower and smooth all over the flower with paintbrush or finger. Let dry.

4.       Apply several colours of alcohol inks to an Ink Applicator (with a felt pad). Stamp the inked Applicator all over the flower. Use some blending solution if required. Stop when the desired look is achieved. Alcohol ink dries very quickly. I also used gold mixative with the inks.

5.       Add pearls to the centre of flowers. Pearls Chocolate (SB792), Pearl Brads Chocolate (EM935)

6.       Use your finished altered flowers on your project.
