Alcohol Inks


I have been playing with alcohol inks today and have a couple of cards to share with you.  First up I used a range of inks on acetate and then used it as a background for the gorgeous floral die plate from Stamplorations:

I used a sentiment from Stamplorations Hope Blooms set to complete the design.  I shall link it up at The Flower Challenge where we are using acetate or vellum.

I shall also link up at Stamplorations Never Ending Challenge.

I also used the inks on some yupo paper and used that as the base for the beautiful Stamplorations butterflies.  I inked up my Forest Foliage stencil and added another sentiment from Hope Blooms:

I shall link this up at the Cutplorations challenge where the May theme is Wings and Things.  There are lots of fun things going on over at Stamplorations this month and they have some fab new products.....

I do love the effects you can get with alcohol inks :)  I am sure that I will be getting them out again soon!

Thanks for stopping by,
