Alcohol Markers on Cryogen Paper

 Today I tried something a little new to me today!  Using a Penny Black  stamp, I colored with Alcohol Markers directly on the stamp and then stamped on Cryogen#89  paper from Paper Temptress.



The different part: using alcohol markers for this traditionally used water color marker technique.  I stamped this on Beautiful
I stamped this on Beautiful Croygen 89# paper.  This also was a first for me and  I kinda of held my breath, not knowing how the ink would play on the paper
not knowing how the ink would play on this sparkly paper.  The ink left the stamp and sat on the paper perfectly and I was able to go back in and add a little bit more detail with the fine nib on my pen ( I use Spectrum Noir)





In this shot, you can see the beautiful Sparkle! This Just added something so special to this simple stamp!  I edged the card with distress ink which also moved beautifully on the  Cryogen Paper!



This lovely paper is one I will definitely want to stock up on, I am thinking what beautiful Christmas cards this will make!
Thanks for Stopping by!

  1. So you got the ink off the stamp without a problem? Beautiful card! Never heard of that paper, but may have to look it up!

  2. Oh Ginny what a great outcome to your 'experiment' - I do love the sparkle and the way the ink behaved for you.
