COLOR THOSE JEWELS!!

I just love the Ranger Adirondack Alcohol ink & blingy jewels. So it just seemed natural that the two should work together! What a great way to get the color jewels to compliment your work!

Alcohol ink covers most surfaces & dries very quickly. It will stain your hands, so I prefer to use plastic gloves! To cover my gems I use very basic stuff...paper plate, plastic spoon & an artist paintbrush. I place the bling in the spoon & drop 1-2 droplets of ink directly on the gem. I then push the gem with the paintbrush onto the paper plate to dry! I found this is the best way-quick, easy & does not waste ink. The color varies according to the color that the bling is originally.

Now try this with the ink.. it will also cover those brads that you never seem to have enough of the right color! I started with a yellow brad & 2 drop later... WALA... a black brad!

Now try it on button & raw chip too!! You will soon seen how easy this is to work with! Just be sure to cover your work surface!!Here are the finished jewels!! Lovin the bling & REALLY lovin the Alcohol...Alcohol ink that is!
