Mixed Media Tag Beer Alcohol Ink

Hello, my talented crafty friends, I hope you all had an awesome weekend. This week at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, our challenge theme is "Alcohol, Drinks or Inks".  We would like you to use something ‘alcohol’ on your creations, this includes alcohol ink markers, or you can choose to use images of alcoholic drinks eg, wine, beer etc.

I was inspired to create a mixed media tag using Tim Holtz Translucent Alcohol Ink Yupo Paper on the background, then colored it with Ranger Alcohol Inks and embellished it using Tim Holtz Rubber Stamp Beer Blue Print.

To start this project, I started with applying different colors of Ranger Alcohol Inks on Tim Holtz Translucent Alcohol Ink Yupo Paper and blended the colors with a pen brush and Blending Solution. I created some Harlequin patterns by layering the Tim Holtz Layering stencil over the colored Yupo paper, and dabbed to lift the colors with Tim Holtz Applicator Tool with Alcohol Lift Ink Reinker on it. I cut and pasted this Yupo Paper on the size 8 tag that was covered with Gesso. 

On the White Yupo paper, I also colored with various shades of Alcohol Inks. Then I die cut the gear and heart embellishments. The beer image was stamped and colored with Copic Markers. The celebrate sentiment was cut with the white Yupo paper and Simon Everyday Words die and Big Shot.

All the embellishments were adhered on the tag with Tombow Mono Glue and Foam Tabs. Some more sentiments were added with Tim Holtz Metallic Stickers. I really enjoyed playing with the Alcohol Inks on different medias including the white and translucent Yupo Paper, and the glossy photo paper. The effects created using Alcohol Lift Ink Reinker and Blending Solutions are awesome.

Hope you are inspired with my project and got a chance to play with these fun alcohol inks and products. Looking forward to seeing what you create!
