[VIDEO] 3 Backgrounds with Alcohol Inks

Hi everybody,

I tried to make a little Video for you using alcohol inks for backgrounds. I'm really no pro in this technique, but I wanted to give a little instruction how I do that technique and maybe you'll get a little feeling about this way of creating backgrounds...

I found out that there is a world behind distress ink and watercolor ;-) The backgrounds are so very important of the most of our cards, so I wantet to try something I didn't know yet.. maybe you'll have the same fun with alkohol inks like me.

Here you can watch the Video in english

And here is my Video in Deutsch :-)

Did you know that all the stampsets are available in german AND english? So If you see german sentiments on my cards, you can be sure this set is also international in the shop  ;-)


  1. These inks surely give some very astonishing backgrounds !!

  2. These are great cards Birka and I love your backgrounds. When I first learned this technique we used dye ink refills (not alcohol refills), metallic refills and regular rubbing alcohol with a piece of felt to pounce the colours around with on a piece of glossy cardstock from Stamping Up. It worked great also.
    P.S. your English is perfect!
