Alcohol Ink Color Swatch Cards

Happy Tuesday!  I hope you've all had a wonderful start to your week!  Today I wanted to share a really fun, easy and awesome way to create a great looking card using alcohol inks.  

This is such a fun technique because all you have to do is to apply a single line of color of alcohol ink to the short side of your felt then swipe it across your card, change the felt and repeat with your next color.  I like to use 3 colors but you could use 2, 3, 4 or more.  Whatever you like.

I have used 3 colors on each of the following cards.  The first card uses Sail Boat Blue, Pool & Lettuce paired with Deep Red Stamps.

The next card is the classic combo of Shell Pink, Watermelon and Cranberry again with Deep Red Stamps.  The pearls started out life a white pearls but were also colored using the Cranberry Alcohol Ink...just a drop on each did the trick.

So now you have another fun technique to use with your alcohol inks.  This also works great with Distress Inks, watercolors, etc.  Use what you have but do give it a try.  You'll have so much fun pairing different colors together to match your needs.

Ink on my friends Ink on!!
