Creating Backgrounds with CTMH Re-inkers and a YouTube Video Tutorial

Well, I threatened it, so I did it!  I completed another YouTube Video!  I have been experimenting with the CTMH re-inkers and rubbing alcohol inks for the past few days.  I finally got the technique perfected so I went ahead and did a video.  First off, before the video, I had to make a couple cards to show off. 
I used the re-inker technique to create the frame (cut on the Cricut with the Art Philosophy cartridge) and the focal image.  The sketch was taken from this week's sketch challenge over at Mojo Monday.

Here is another card that I did using the re-inkers and rubbing alcohol.
This card is done in Tulip, Sunset and Cocoa.  The largest mat that just peaks out is from the new Stella paper packet.

And, here is the link to the infamous new video...
I really had fun creating the video and experimenting with the re-inkers and alcohol.  All the details on how are made the backgrounds are included on the video.  For Now, Happy Crafting!
