Default TLC807~Only Isopropyl Alcohol For Me~08/10/2020

Good second Monday of August! I'm posting a bit early because 1) there are some storms going through, afraid I'll lose power and 2) I'm an early to bed girl. Today we are going to play with watercolor paper, acrylic paints (any kind), water and isopropyl alcohol. Here is the tutorial for this technique:

Don't worry, I would never drink isopropyl, I just don't drink period. Thanks to Pat (pvilbaum) for drawing my attention to this technique. I love background techniques, all one needs is something simple like a diecut on top. One suggestion: make sure your paint is very thin, even thinner than what is suggested. I even sprayed with water before dropping on the alcohol. This technique can be a hit or miss, but I found it rather fun and interesting.

Here's a link to our TLC807 Drunken Acrylic Reveal gallery

Here are my cards:
