Alcohol Ink Fun with Wendy Vecchi!

Happy Halloween bloggers!! On top of celebrating Halloween, how's this fun fact? Today the 7 BILLIONTH person was born into our population!! Our phenomenal Mother Earth sure has a full house now!

First, let me start out announcing our blog candy winners from the weekend! Lots of lucky people!
From Friday's blog Wrap It With 7 Gypsies Paper: Sue Bridges from Maine!
From Saturday's blog Capture A Week: Maryann!
From Sunday's blog Spellbinding Spellbinders with Christine Urias: Rachel W K!
If you're a winner that's listed- please email with the title of the blog you won from, and your shipping info! Congrats everyone!!

Today I have a marvelous video from the EVER clever and imaginative Wendy Vecchi! Her blog, Studio 490, has a lovely voice with tons of inviting projects for everyone to try! The technique video I'm about to share with you is just a sample of how awesome the ideas are that come from the Studio 490 blog- definitely check it out!

AH! I just love this! Wendy's initial drive for this was to experiment with Tim Holtz Alcohol Inks on Kraft Glassine Envelopes for a verdigris/rusty look. Man, oh man did that experimentation lead to a great place!
She took two lighter color Alcohol Inks (Cloudy Blue and Juniper) and the Snow Cap Alcohol Ink Mixative, mixed them on the Ink Blending Tool, and dabbed them all over the Kraft Glassine Envelope. After some crumpling and crinkling, a little heat, and some additional color touch ups- this is the result!

Isn't that a great gift card holder idea? Such a different project! Thanks for sharing your project, and voice Wendy!

Thanks for reading today, hope you enjoyed the video, and Happy Birthday to the 7 Billionth member of Earth!
