Coloring with Alcohol Ink Marker!

Hello friends!!
I have some new toys lately and one of them is this Tim Holtz Alcohol Marker.


I never know that This Alcohol Ink Marker existed (had I been living under a rock?) even though I have 15 bottles of alcohol inks.
Well, it's never too late to teach an old dog new tricks!
So, I experimented alcohol-ink coloring with this stamp set "Blooming Bouquet" Altenew.
Shop Altenew here, shop Simon Says Stamp here.

Putting the Alcohol Blending Solution into the Alcohol Ink Marker's small opening was a bit tricky. However, once you follow the instructions and carefully remove the clasp with the nib, it is really easy to use. I think that I am happy with the result.


Because of the alcohol Ink, you need non-porous paper such as Alcohol Ink Yupo Paper.
This is another way of using your existing Alcohol Ink and now with the marker, you can COLOR with them! I wish knew this sooner... LOL

The sentiment Script Words Die 2 ( shop Altenew here, shop SSS here) was doubled up with Black card stock and Cherry Wood Paper.


 Alcohol Inks used are: Patina,  Sunshine, Flamingo, Citrus, and Botanical.

 You know, that's the beauty of this hobby....there is always something new to learn. Love that!

This is so funny to me Virginia, as I seldom have anything current that the bloggers I follow are using. However, I have had one of these for about 4 years! LOL Before I had any Copic's, I used Bic markers and if I got any permanent marker on my EP, I would use this (filled with alcohol) to clean it off.
Your card is just beautiful, TFS!

I've never heard of this marker either, Virginia. You did a great job with it.

Harriet said...

I must be under a stone too as I have never seen this product. Wow, Virginia, you sure like to use alcohol inks so this find a treasure for you. Have fun!

Have to get me one of those dern things. I, too, own scads of alcohol inks and this would definitely come in handy. It sure did when you used it on your incredible beautiful card. Those inks are so vibrant and alive they make everything pop. Also smitten with that wooden sentiment...gorgeous.

Beautiful card. I love the leaves and splatters in the center of the card. What a nice touch.
