Merriest Moments Using the Alcohol & Blends Technique

I bet you have been seeing several people creating cards using the rubbing alcohol and blends marker technique.  Well, here is mine for you too!  Remember that you need to use 91% alcohol - the 70% alcohol won't work as well.  Also I found that you will get a different look depending upon how you apply the alcohol.

If you smooch (yes, a technical term) the alcohol onto the vellum by loading a paint brush with alcohol and then pressing down onto a spot, you will get larger spots like in my sample here.  Just remember not to get too much alcohol - otherwise you won't get the cool lines.  A little goes a long way.  Wait a bit between applications as the alcohol will move.

If you load your paint brush and then tap onto the side of your finger to splatter the alcohol, you will get a totally different look with smaller spots.  You can even do a combination of both!
