Fairy Art Card, How to use Alcohol Inks

I had alot of fun with this wonderful stamp I am borrowing from a friend. I used it many different ways but this project was using my alcohol inks, and Pearl glitter.
Alcohol inks can be used on a variety of surfaces that pigment and dye inks won't stick to. So it's really fun to experiment on metals, brads, glass, plastics, glossy paper and transparencies (found at office supply stores). In this project I was able to manipulate the colors by blotting the inks with a blending tool on a clear piece of page protector made for scrapbook pages (I don't have any transparencies) and remove color with Alcohol Blending Solution where I wanted an image to show through like the fairy in the bottom right corner, the rose in the top corner and center of the wreath. The grundgeboard swirl attached on the bottom is painted, glittered and bejeweled.
Alcohol ink was used to change the color of the wire on the top.

The pigment inked doesn't want to dry on this shiny surface so I pressed Diamond Dust Twinklets into the wreath image.

Perfect Pearl Powders are baked right into the clay.

These papers were made using Tattered Angels Mists, UTEE and microbeads.
