Frugality in crafting ... homemade embossing ink. Who would have thought it was a mixture of Vaseline, cooking oil and alcohol! One reviewer said this: "I find glycerin works really well and you don't get the oily bleed that can happen with oil and petroleum jelly. You can add watercolour paint or food colouring if you want to tint it. Works like a charm."

Homemade Clear Embossing Ink....You need 1 tsp of petroleum jelly, I used the classic, Vaseline. Mix in 1/8 capful of vegetable oil.Then mix in 1/8 capful of alcohol to dilute. Mix together. It doesn't make a lot but it does make more than enough to rehydrate your ink pad.

Homemade alcohol ink. 2 methods. One: in a baby food jar, pour 1 pkg powdered Rit dye, fill with rubbing alcohol and shake until no grains remain. Method #2: (this won't be grainy) mix ½ cup of isopropyl alcohol (NOT rubbing alcohol) to every two teaspoons of liquid Rit dye. You may want to add more dye as necessary to create a deeper color, but a little goes a long way.
