Learn how to create a wrinkled technique for sublimation on jewelry.
This wrinkle technique creates great results. I first tried it with regular stamp pads and was inspired by not wanting to throw away my used protective paper from sublimation. You can read about that here. [wrinkle technique] Immediately after doing so, I thought why not use the new sublimation ink pads from Artesprix for this technique? So here it is applied to a
To finish off the pendant after sublimating the front, I used permanent black ink on the sides and back of the piece.

Make a 3D paper Christmas tree with this free SVG file.
I thought it would be fun to create something for Christmas in July, so I made this retro-looking Christmas Tree. Because there is no glue needed, you can create it now and store it flat to use later. How fun would it be to wrap it in little twinkle lights or place fun objects on the shelf-like sections? You could make it in a different color to suit your decor.

Trying alcohol ink on silver metallic looking stickers from the Dollar Tree.
Alcohol inks are very fun to create with. They interact with each other in interesting ways creating different results each time. They work on most non-porous surfaces so when I saw these metallic-looking stickers at the Dollar Tree, I knew I wanted to try alcohol ink on them.
Metallic stickers come in silver, gold, and bronze colors. I chose the silver thinking it would work best with the inks.
First I tried dropping the ink onto the sticker, the next one I tried applying the ink with a cotton swab, and on the last sticker, I switched to acrylic paint markers. Each process gave a different result. The video tutorial below will take you through each process.
I think the first and last version gave the best results. While the stickers appeared metallic in the package and once removed appeared more like plastic either surface should work. The alcohol ink didn’t work as well as I expected. The acrylic paint markers gave great coverage but lost the metallic quality of the original sticker. In summation, the plastic mailing envelope I used as a protective work surface actually had the best results from the alcohol ink being applied to it. So now I have another project to work on!
