Background Technique with Re-inkers and Alcohol

Hello Dear Friends:

This card was published at the Spanish blog: "A crear se dijo!"...for "Memory Box"...
The technique that I used is a fun and very pretty one...

It is made with "specialty stamping" paper from "Ranger", some re-inkers and plain rubbing alcohol...to give this "marbled" effect!

The background, as I said, was created using "specialty stamping paper" from "Ranger", some re-inkers from "Wendi Vecchi" line of archival inks... and alcohol...

technique step by step:
Step one: place some drops of ink "Archival" with some alcohol on a craft sheet...mix with a spatula/painting knife

technique step 1: alcohol with re-inkers

step 2:
place the "specialty stamping paper" (important to use this paper for the technique)
on top of mix and "grab" some color...

technique step 2: alcohol with re-inkers

step 3:
dry heat with a heat gun
repeat process until you like what you see...

technique step 3: alcohol with re-inkers

here are some samples using different combinations of colors of re-inkers...
