Hi, all! I wanted to share this project with you that I did for Simon Says Stamp last week. :)

Not too long ago, I saw a my friend Heidi carrying a Tim Holtz District Market Butterfly Tote and had to comment on it. It was beautiful! When I asked her about it she said that she had painted it with alcohol inks. How clever!

So I tried out the same and I’m taking you guys along for the ride.

I had no previous experience with alcohol inks, but they were pretty easy to work with, especially because I used an Aquash brush filled with Alcohol Blending Solution. Any brush strokes, etc. seem to “settle” with time. Also, as I was painting the bag, I made note of some tips and tricks to share with you in the video below.
