Deer and Alcohol Ink Skies

I know it is yet another alcohol ink sky post! If you look closely at the panel below you will see one of the things I love about alcohol inks and dye inks and that is the separation of pigments when a colour is diluted. It is more obvious in some inks that others but you can see it in the eggplant ink below. There is purple, grey, blue and shades of maroon. So yummy!

The panel above was diluted with isopropyl alcohol more that the panel below but I definitely used it on both to move the inks around.

To complete the cards I die cut the PB deer from white cardstock and add small simple sentiments. Small sentiments are my favourite; I think I’ve mentioned that before.

I think my next post might not be alcohol inks! Stay tuned!

    Lovely, especially the leaping deer. You could never paint that effect, it’s so completely random, so to speak.

    I love all the alcohol ink cards..so I am sure none of us are getting tired of them!
    I love watercoloring, too, of course.
    Whatever you do, keep doing it. It is all so inspiring.
    Thank you for sharing.

    You have chosen so well with the deer images to go over your gorgeous AI backgrounds Heather, and as you say they end up different every time and the colour separation looks great. x

    Love your alcohol ink skies and never tire of seeing them, Heather. I especially love the mix of colours on your first card, but it’s the flow of the medium that makes them the most spectacular! Great work! xx

    Such beautiful alcohol inked backgrounds, Heather! Thanks for pointing out the different shades that presented themselves from the eggplant ink! Wow! The white deer are perfect to draw the eye to the background. I like small sentiments too.

    What incredible dramatic skies! Those colors work so well for a wintry effect. Thanks too for listing the supplies and colors. I’d have never thought to add green to that combination.
