until I read Caroline's blog this morning...
When I was teaching in Texas, I mentioned that the Maya Road jewels could be made any color by applying Alcohol inks. Caroline showed that on her blog today. And...she also colored the new jewel topped pins. COOL!
So...taking it in a little bit different direction...by applying the alcohol ink MIXATIVES...you can also make them silver & gold...and OPAQUE for another look.
On the top is the original version...below left is the silver mixative and on the right is the gold.
So...not only can you make them any custom transparent color to coordinate with any project, they can also look like this.
And a reminder...if the color isn't a match, just remove it with the Alcohol Blending solution & try again.
Just what I like...quick & oh so simple! I think I better try the pearl & the copper mixatives next...hmmm.
Now...not only am I looking for things to use with those addicting Cuttlebug embossing folders...I'm looking for things to alcohol ink...
I'm off to the grocery then I'll come home to...
