Message from Cathy
Hi, it's Cathy here. Alcohol inks are so much fun to play with!
Just remember to work in a well ventilated area.
You can apply the inks directly through a stencil onto glossy card or yupo paper.
or place a stencil onto an inked background and watch the magic happen as you remove the colour with lift ink or blending solution.
I hope you can play along this month!
