Making backgrounds with re inkers and rubbing alcohol

The class this week is all about re-inkers - how to create beautiful backgrounds, and how to use them on tiles.  This is one of the tags the students will be creating.  The Large Scallop Square die was used as a basis for this tag.
Background:  The polished stone technique was used to create this  background.  Riding Hood Red, Old Olive and metallic re-inkers were applied to a cotton ball soaked with rubbing alcohol and daubed onto shiny card stock.  After is was dry, images were stamped using black Stazon ink.

 Paper: Real Red, Glossy Card Stock
Inks: Re-inkers:  Riding Hood Red, Old Olive, Metallic, Black Stazon
Accessories: Large Scallop Square and the Big Shot, Cotton balls, Rubbing Alcohol, Silver Tinsel string.

Other materials:

Ink:  Black Stazon, Baja Breeze
Paper: Glossy Card Stock, Very Vanilla, Basic Black
