Video of Mixing Alcohol Inks and Distress Oxide Inks | Belated Birthday Card

If you ever thought I had an odd sense of humor you would be correct! I thought the idea of this card was funny. Did it turn out how I thought it would..... no, of course not. But the technique of mixing Alcohol Inks and Oxide Inks together was something I wanted to share.

I struggled with doing the voice over of this video for some reason. I knew what I wanted to say but couldn't get it articulated I guess. So I do apologize for that. I thought I was improving my video quality with my previous one of the watercolored Buttercups but now I feel like I've gone backwards. Maybe I'm too hard on myself. 

I did this card using the another back ground. I really like this one. I used the gold mixative alcohol ink.

Here is a close up of the alcohol oxide ink blend.


It was a fun to experiment though and let me know if you try mixing them too. I want to see photos if you share on Instagram. Tag me!
