Alcohol !

Hi there

This is to show you some things I have done using Alcohol Inks. Yep, I too thought that alcohol was just for drinking after a bad day at work ! :)
I cut a sheet of A4 acetate down to A6, The I went to town on it using Terracotta, Raisin and wild plum, with a little mettallic gold for good measure. I had just been playing with my Alcohol inks and had this background sheet for a few days wondering what to do with it.

The card is a Craftwork Cards bracket edge card blank, with the bracket bit folded back on itself. I then stuck the acetate under the folded bit and worked out where my topper would be before sticking under there as well.
The stamped image is a Crafters Companion SWALK, coloured with promarkers. This has been die cut with Nesties labels 4 die, cut in my Big Shot, and inked with tattered rose distress inks. The green flourishes were die cut from green bazzill bling using 2 Marrianne Dies. The flowers are from Prima held in place with a faux gem brad.
The backing paper on the inside is just some pale pink paper I have had for a while (you can probably read that as years :rolleyes: ) I punched the edge with an EKSuccess punch and then added 2 more Marrianne flourishes. The blue pearls on the topper were from a Pearl pen which you can squeeze out aas much or a little as you need. The flower on the card was also done with a Lilac pearl pen.

All the products used to make this card were bought from The Stamp Pad in Saddleworth.

Happy Crafting

Edit :- My hubby has just asked me if there is any techniques I havent used on this card. How Rude! !
