I LOVE embellishing with flat-back rhinestones and pearls. I live in an area without a local scrapbook or stamping store. So my color potions for these products is limited to what Michael's and Hobby Lobby have on hand. That is until I discovered how easy it is to color these items with Alcohol inks. I am building my inventory of Alcohol Inks which in turn will wave me money by allowing me to get clear rhinestones and white pearls and change them to whatever color I want.
Played around with several alcohol ink and mixatives with kids as a science project. Kids loved it, comparing how absorbent different types of paper can be. We even tried to make our own alcohol inks... this is definitely much better! No impurities vs our homemade version.
Beautiful vibrant color!
As always, Tim Holtz' inks live up to their outstanding reputation. All of the inks that I ordered were in perfect shape, and I was especially pleased with the wonderful service I received from Scrapbook.com. I would certainly recommend them to my fellow artists.
