I mean alcohol inks of course :) I was playing around with my alcohol inks at the weekend and getting frustrated - I never seem to be able to get a look that I like. It may be my preference for CAS that makes the inks just too unpredictable for me! Anyway, I accidently got a few drops on a piece of gloss card and liked the way it spread out so I tried making a few backgrounds by dropping the inks with some blending solution.
I embossed and cut out the gorgeous new Hummingbird stamp from Uniko Studios on vellum as I thought that my inky background gave the impression of a blurry background created by the bird hovering....
I will join up with Uniko's current challenge as it is using a similar colour palette....also I will link up with Simon Says Stamp's Wednesday Challenge to use clear elements on our cards as the hummingbird is stamped on vellum. Finally, and very belatedly I will link up with the lovely Darnell's birthday party as I am sure she will appreciate a card made using NBUS!
Here is a second card with a bit more green and gold in it:
I can't decide which I like more - what do you think?
I hope you are looking forward to a lovely weekend :)
Thanks for stopping by!
