Alcohol Ink Resist Cards

Press for Progress Alcohol Ink Resist Card by Dana Tatar for Paper Wings Productions

Hi! Dana here today sharing a set of cards that I created for Women's History Month. Annually during the month of March, the contributions of women to historical events, both in the past and in contemporary society, are highlighted. I thought a resist technique was suitable for cards supporting this movement. I used a tutorial by Carrie to create these cards in which alcohol ink is removed from acetate using Archival ink. You can find her tutorial and inspirational designs HERE.

I chose patterned acetate sheets for the base of both of my cards. I had to dig deep into my Hambly Screen Prints stash for this, and it was totally worth it! The International Women's Day theme this year is "Press for Progress." I love the theme and the imagery of hands used in the campaign so I used both hand stamps from the Handmade Clear Stamp Set on this card.

I changed the color palette for this second card, but used circles in the design again. I stamped over alcohol ink with the circles stamp from the Big Art Textures Cling Stamp Set and then rubbed away the ink with a paper towel to create the white circles.

I used my Dymo tape label maker to create the sentiments for both cards.

I hope I have inspired you to try this technique!

Pin It!
