Here a couple of cards that I made using an old technique, alcohol inks, glossy card stock, and a straw. I dropped some coordinating colors of alcohol ink on glossy card stock, and then took a straw and blew the ink in different directions. I then stamped the images, the lighthouse is by Impression Obsession and the sailboat by PSX (very old!) with Staz On ink. I needed to do something other than just color with my Copics, and I think they both turned out quite well.
