Alcohol Ink Vs Copic Refill Backgrounds with Neat & Tangled

 Hello Crafters! 

It's the weekend and I'm working 
BUT
It's beautiful outside and the rain has stayed away so far. 
I'm calling it a win. 


I'm over on the Neat & Tangled Blog today sharing a comparison video on alcohol inks vs Copic Reinkers. this is something a few people had asked about and I thought it would be nice to see it in action. 


The Yupo paper I have is 5x7 so I just cut it in half to create two different backgrounds. 
This card was created with the Copic refills. The totally work with the Alcohol mixative you just need to add more pigment to get vibrant color. It also dried a bit quicker than the Ranger Alcohol inks. 


For the traditional Alcohol Inks it took more mixative to move it but I had more time to play around with the dry time. The color intensity with just a few drops of ink was also much more opaque. It did dry with a more granulated finish but I actually kind of like it. 

You can see both cards come together in the video below 


I think both of the girls came out darling. I love how mixing up your approach to the same card can make it look completely different :) 

Also I managed to hunt down the mermaid photo...

This photo was taken before I tried to drown myself in the pool
bahaha. 


Thanks for dropping in!
I hope you have an amazing weekend :)
