    homemade alcohol ink for stamping Instructions Things You'll Need: Powered Rit dye Rubbing alcohol Isopropyl alcohol Liquid Rit fabric dye Baby food jars Cotton balls for ink application Method One: 1. Empty a package of Rit powered dye in your chosen color into a small empty jar of baby food. 2. Fill the rest of the baby food jar with ordinary rubbing alcohol, seal the jar and shake it up well. Shaking the mixture up well is important because the results can be a bit grainy if you have not completely combined the powdered Rit dye with the rubbing alcohol. 3. If you do not have baby food jars on hand, you can use black film canisters instead. For this recipe, you would fill the canister one quarter full with the powdered dye and the rest of the way full with the rubbing alcohol, once again making sure to shake the mixture up well. Method Two: 1. For a slightly less grainy mixture than the method above, start with liquid Rit fabric dye and isopropyl alcohol instead, mixing ½ cup of isopropyl alcohol to every two teaspoons of Rit dye. You may want to add more dye as necessary to create a deeper color, but keep in mind that a little definitely goes a long way. 2. Mix the isopropyl alcohol and the liquid Rit fabric dye together and shake well, making sure that the two liquids mix completely before use. 3. Once you have finished mixing either of the recipes listed above, you can apply the alcohol ink to your rubber stamps using an alcohol ink applicator or regular white cotton balls, rubbing the ink directly onto the stamp before stamping with it.

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."

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.
