I can’t believe I haven’t posted since July – I have been super sick and haven’t made anything since then. I did make a tutorial video and some background cards a couple weeks ago using some Ranger Adirondack Alcohol Inks by Tim Holz. Although it’s my first video and naturally I hate how my voice sounds, so I delayed in posting this. The reality is – I don’t want to redo the video, so here you go – please don’t be too hard on me!!!
^ ^ ^ Please pin and share ^ ^ ^
Here are the two backgrounds created from the video. The one on the left has Aqua, Sail Boat Blue, Stream, and Silver Mixative. The one the right is the same, but with the addition of the alcohol blending solution.
A close up of the first one, hard to catch the metallic sheen a little bit.
Here’s a close up of the one with the blending solution.
I had so much fun that I couldn’t stop, here’s a couple more backgrounds:
Eggplant, Purple Twilight, Wild Plum, and Gold Mixative
A close-up, it reminds me of pansies?
Love how this one looks like patina on copper. I used Bottle, Ginger, and Copper Mixative.
If you didn’t know better, do you think this could actually be copper? Cool huh!
This one has aqua, Denim, Pitch Black, and Citrus.
A weird color combo but I still like it!
I love how this one turned out; it’s Wild Plum, Salmon, and Snow Cap (white) Mixative.
Thanks for joining me, I hope you enjoyed the video tutorial on alcohol inks!
If you like more pictures in a how-to instead of video, here is an older Alcohol Ink tutorial, my first actually!

This post has some recent cards with Alcohol Ink, comparing the same Alcohol Ink colors but with Ranger Jet Black Archival on one card and Cotton White Staz On on the other.
See you soon!
