It is done with an ink blending tool and alcohol inks.
I cut some blank tags from specialty paper for alcohol inks. That could be glossy paper or just coated paper. I have both but for this technique I prefer the coated paper that is also suited for copics or promarkers.
Most people that know me know I love working on tags.
I squirted some alcohol
inks colours on my blending tool with felt.
I drag the tool at an angle over the tag and create streaks of ink.
Once the whole tag is covered I reapply the colours on the blending tool and drag them over the tag in the other direction...
This creates the plaid effect....
This is a plain horizontal pattern.
I like to do diagonal ones too, just to get some variety.
And this is how that looks like when finished. The possibilities are endless. It looks amazing in pastel colours aswel.
It is so easy to do and quite addictive... :-)
For some detail you can draw some lines with a sharpie. Here I added a simple gold line.
Just give it a whirl, it is so fun and it gives you instant backgrounds. Just add embellishments or stamp over it.
Thank you for visiting. Take care and keep your craft on ;-)
