Very easy alcohol ink spray recipes

I decided to try my hand at making my own alcohol ink since I had everything on hand already.  All I needed to do was buy the bottles. It was a very simple recipe. Fill the bottle 3/4 full of rubbing alcohol then add food coloring to your desired color. I mixed blue and red for purple. Yellow and red for orange. I was very pleased that this simple recipe turned out so well. I would not use these with a scrapbook but I am planning on starting art journaling.
I have also seen another interesting recipe I may try. Using Sharpie, Bic or even Dollar tree permanent markers. You fill your spray bottle about 3/4 full of alcohol. Then you pour that into a plastic cup (ink stains glass of ceramic). Take the tip of the marker out of the tip of the pen and place into the alcohol. Let it sit until you get the desired color. If you want a deeper color open the pen and place the entire ink filled center into the alcohol. I have seen that several people have bought the Dollar Tree marker sets and have been pleased. They are usually only 4 colors but the Sharpie, BIC permanent markers have wider ranges of colors.
