Did you know that not only do the ink refills refill your pens, but they are also loads of fun for mixed media projects? This is a totally fun and easy project. I am in love with this technique.
Supplies: Spectrum Noir Ink Refills – GB1, TN5, TB2, 1/2 sheet glossy cardstock, collage style stamp set, Sponge. spritz bottle with rubbing alcohol, craft mat to protect your crafting surface, cutting tool, embellishments
Step 1 - Randomly drop drops from the refill bottles. Use sponge or blotter to spread ink to fill in any white spaces and soften lines between colors. Let dry.
Step 2 – Lightly spritz the paper with rubbing alcohol. This will dilute random areas for a fun pattern. Let completely dry. This is what your paper may look like.
Step 3 – After the ink is completely dry, stamp with Stazon Ink. Normally you would not use Stazon ink with alcohol markers, but since the alcohol has already evaporated, it will work fine for this project.
Step 4 – color embellishments. The metal key was colored with the TN5 pen to match the paper.
Step 3 – Assemble card.
I hope you enjoyed my tutorial and give this technique a try.
