How adorable are these narwhals?! They come from the Narwhal friends stamp set from this new collection.

I went with a red, a green and an orange… but really any color would work great on them.

The stunning backgrounds were created by using my alcohol inks on yupo. Check the video on a step by step tutorial!

Blowing the alcohol ink can give amazing results!

    You certainly do have steady hands when stamping!! I know I don’t!!! (Ask me how I know that!!!!) The alcohol inked backgrounds are perfect for the narwhal and I agree the backgrounds with a darker and lighter color blend to a striking result. I’m still learning about how to use alcohol inks so I appreciate you sharing your experience. Thanks for the video, Vicky! I was watching Tim Holt’s live on the Ideaology release when notice came to my inbox that there was a video waiting for me to watch from you! It’s been a good day so far! The creative juices are beginning to flow again.
