Instructions

 

Hi there, creative friends! It’s Cheiron Brandon back with a fun and simple to create project using the newest colors of Tim Holtz Alcohol Pearls and Alloy. I am using all of the colors today in two cards to showcase each set.  


 
Alcohol Pearls and Alloy Tags Step 1

Step 1: Gather your supplies. I used Heavyweight Yupo Paper (you could use regular), the two newest sets of Alcohol Pearls (Intense, Scorch, Radiant) and (Elixir, Divine, Opulent), Rose Alloy, a couple of favorite Tim Holtz stencils and Distress Matte Texture Paste.

Step 4:  To create the first tag, use Alcohol Blending Solution over the tag and then apply Intense, Scorch, and Radiant Alcohol Pearls and move them around the tag with the Alcohol Ink Blower. Then add a little more Alcohol Blending Solution and add tiny drops of the Rose Alloy and move them around with the blower. Let the tag dry.
