A New Twist with Alcohol Inks

It's Trina  with the Scrap Happy design team here. I have been MIA the last few weeks. Life sometimes gets in the way of creative time! So I did this project with the MOPS (Mother's of Preschoolers) group a couple of weeks ago. 


Glass jar ( baby food size to pickle jar size)
Alcohol inks - terra cotta, rust and caramel
Black Diamond stickles or glass paint
Yarn, ribbons or twine
Tea light

What you need to do is to make sure you remove all labels from the jar. Then put drops of one color of the alcohol inside the sides of the jar and roll around. When that is dry go to the next color and so on. Then you make a Jack-O-Lantern face on the front of the jar with your stickles and let dry. Use your ribbon, yarn, etc. to decorate the top rim of the jar. Insert a tealight and presto a Jack-o-lantern without the mess!

I love the stained glass effect of the alcohol inks. Hope you like and give it a try!
