Alcohol Inks and the WRONG black ink

Hello again-- I'm back with ANOTHER alcohol ink creation! 

I am in LOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE with the Etc. Papers Synthetic EVO Papers. I love the smooth texture and how it holds the alcohol ink so beautifully. I need to purchase more papers because I'm running out! LOL! 

I've had to learn a lesson (or two) as I've started to use alcohol inks more. Today's lesson has to do with the correct black ink. For this card, I created the background and sat on the design for at least three days! I just thought that beautiful plumb, pink, and teal (not the original color names) needed something special to make it pop. 
Well... the idea hit me and I didn't think about what I was doing! 🤦🏼‍♀️ I started stamping a gorgeous flower from The Stamp Market on the inked EVO Paper using my favorite TSM Black ink. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! This paper needs a solvent ink like ICT Stazon Jet Black. OH MAN! But it all worked out because I sprayed some Workable Fixatif to the papers and it helped the image "set". #lessonlearned
I really do love how this card turned out. I doubt I could recreate it... but I might try:) 

THANKS so much for stopping by! I've got one more card to share using alcohol inks... but I'll be making more this week!!! I can't wait to share them with you! 

Be blessed ❤️

Inks: Ranger alcohol inks; The Stamp Market Black, Shimmer
