I love the watery look the alcohol ink background has. If you’re curious how to make alcohol ink backgrounds like this one, please check out my YouTube video HERE. I hope that mouse is having a good time! It looks like a lot of work to paddle that teacup. For more fun ideas, please visit the Stampendous Blog. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
