Alcohol Ink Technique

There is an awesome tutorial at that shares how to use alcohol ink for scenery cards.

For this card, I used Tim Holtz Adirondack Alcohol ink in Butterscotch, Stream and Wild Plum. This made the "sunset" background. It looks like they're watching evening fireworks on the 4th of July.

The stamp is by Stampabilities and it's just one I found on the sale rack at Hobby Lobby.

This technique generally calls for glossy cardstock... Well, I didn't have any of that and live nowhere near a store that carries any. I decided to experiment with posterboard and it worked beautifully! The posterboard comes in sheets of 11x14 inches and comes with five sheets. Works for me!
