Richele Christensen at The Stamp Art Shoppe, Roseville, CA, is THE COLOR LADY! She's very talented and is always teaching classes on techniques for alcohol inks, distress inks, color wash, acrylic stamps daubers, etc. among her many other classes.
I've had a full set of Ranger Alcohol Inks for quite some time. I've always managed to make a nice "MUD PUDDLE" of them, wasting precious ink and Kromekot glossy cardstock. Taking this class definitely helped! (I think some of my problem was using too much blending solution and overworking the ink.)
