Creative Chemistry 102: Tinted Tinsel

In Creative Chemistry 102, we explored one of the great things about alcohol inks – that you can color almost any surface with them! For this tag I used the monochrome ink (Candied Apple, Pine Needles and Vintage Photo Distress Inks) technique with a lovely Christmas sweater stencil. Tim Holtz Idea-ology line has this great product, tinsel twine, that I stained with green and red and then a little bit of brown (for that aged look) Adirondack alcohol inks.  When you heat the tinsel to dry the ink, a wonderful curling action occurs.


I love tiny things so I love this miniature tinsel!
