Get the Look Without the Mess: Faux Alcohol Ink with Artistically Inked Stamp Set


Do you love the look of Blended Alcohol Backgrounds (like in my mermaid video below) but absolutely hate the idea of the mess? Then you’ve come to the right video tutorial! I’ll show you how the Artistically Inked stamp set creates this same look, but with zero mess or stress over the finished product.


These florals create a fabulous inked alcohol look – almost smoky in the way they stamp. The light and dark areas provide fabulous texture – almost like you could reach out and feel the variation.

Plus the background stamp included with this set creates a terrific blended alc0hol look – without any mess at all.


Want to see more Artistically Inked ideas? I’ll share a full set during July. So if you’d like to add this stamp set and die bundle to your collection, I’d recommend ordering asap. As of this post, the stamp/die bundle (155456) is on low inventory status. Which means that while it will be back (it will be in the catalog through next summer), when the dies sell out they’re like to be unavailable for ordering. So get them NOW, or order them asap so you’ll be at the top of the list to receive your dies when they are back in stock.

I’ve had a few questions about the coordinating Expressions in Ink Designer Series Paper. This gorgeous paper (I’ll be using it in my other July LovenStamps Monthly Tutorials projects) is scheduled to be back in the warehouse this week. So watch for it to be available for ordering again very soon. And the Expressions in Ink Ephemera Pack (I used it for the gold strip) is scheduled to be back in stock next week. Moral of the story… order what you like when you see it — and know that the rest will be back shortly 🙂 

Love the look of this project? Be sure to check out this month’s Artistically Inked stamp set tutorials and the supply list. If your order is at least $50, then you’ll also receive LovenStamps Card Kits “To Go” – two ready-to-stamp card kits mailed to your home for 2 of the monthly projects. Just add your stamps and ink, and I’ll supply the pre-cut papers and embellishments. 

EDITED 9/20/21 TO ADD: Love these projects? Want the downloadable PDF tutorial? Good news!! The month may be over and I have a new tutorial available for free with purchase now, but the LovenStamps Expressions in Ink PDF Tutorial (4 projects, including this one) is available for purchase in the LovenStampsCardMart on Etsy!
