This week, Stephanie has a trio of gorgeous, rich looks featuring a fun technique using alcohol inks and the Tim Holtz Distress Marker Spritzer Tool. If you’re in a rut and on the hunt for a project that allows you to simply play without a finished look in mind, this is an ideal starting point. Why not create a stack of colored panels and add a die-cut sentiment as the occasion requires — it’s a great way to make last-minute cards a breeze to pull together.
