Alcohol Inks: Puddle Background

By: Marti Wills for Pezadoodle Designs

Here's another background idea to use with scrapbooking and card making. This alcohol ink technique from Marti Wills creates a lovely puddle background that you can use to make your embossed shapes pop!

Puddle Background


  • Glossy Cardstock.
  • Alcohol Ink- 2-3 coordinating colors.
  • Metallic Mixative
  • Blending Solution
  • Non-Stick Craft Mat





  1. Drop several drops of each alcohol ink on to your craft mat – they should be near each other but not on top of each other.
  2. Add 2-3 drops of metallic mixative.
  3. Add 3-5 drops of Blending Solution.
  4. Lay glossy cardstock face down in the puddle and twist slightly so there is one solid puddle.
  5. Grab one corner and lift – set aside to dry.
  6. This puddle can be used for more than one piece of cardstock. Add more blending solution if inks begin to dry or to make colors lighter.
