Ranger Products Spotlight: Alcohol Inks!

Hi everyone, it’s Shari here with a card inspiration using some super fantastic Ranger products. I’ve been wanting to play with the Artists Modeling Film from Wendy Vecchi for awhile now… and the best coloring agent to use with it is Ranger Alcohol inks! So here is what I came up with!

I wanted to create a subtle background for the flower so I used the Dylusions Dotted Flowers Stencil with Translucent embossing paste. It just adds a little shine.

Take a real close look at the leafy greens on the very back of the flower… I used the Be Creative Tape sheet with the modeling film so I could use Rock Candy Distress Glitter. This flower would be fantastic as a pin for a scarf, just add a pin back!

I’ve also created a video of the entire process. I’ve had to speed it up to fit everything in, so relax and enjoy.


Thanks for stopping by today. I’ll see you next week!

  1. Shari, your card is soooo pretty!! Thank you for teaching us this techique….it is amazing!! I love the colors and all of the dimension that you added, too!!

  2. Another new technique…thank you. I just tried my Translucent embossing paste on a tag and love the look…off to try a card background.

  3. All I can say is WOW! The video is a great tutorial and I can’t wait to go to my studio to try it. Today we have a -30 wind temp so it’s a perfect time to “play”. Thanks for the inspiration!

  4. Just fabulous card, Shari! Love the blend of colour you achieved with the alcohol inks, and the stamping with distress paint was a beautiful finishing touch. I think I would have preferred to see a more organic centre, but the overall effect is spectacular. I’d love to be a fly on the wall when the recipient of this card opened the envelope to reveal this incredible project. Kudos!

  5. I love the technique and stunning card. Would have loved a few more details on the film. What does it do? What are it’s features? Any tips, etc.
