Wetlands Alcohol Ink Technique Card

At last week's Technique Tuesday class, I taught my stampers a quick and easy technique using a clear block, dye ink refills, and hand sanitizing lotion.  Yes, you read that right – hand sanitizing lotion. 

I used a mini hand sanitizer (about 1 oz) and added 7 drops of Soft Suede dye ink refill.  I shook it up enough to distribute the drops of ink.  Then, I dropped about 5 or 6 drops on top of a large clear block.  I flipped the clear block on top of the center of my Very Vanilla card stock, pressing it lightly.  When I pulled away the clear block, it made a super-cool yet subtle design (more subtle due to the light ink refill I chose).  To speed up the drying, I used my heat gun.  Then I stamped the goose in Baked Brown Sugar right on top of the design (which I think looks a lot like grassy sand bar).

Here's the end result – the little droplets are just a bonus – my poor little goose was very nervous being photographed ;)
