Alcohol Inks

Probably you can relate... we are always looking for a place to put a sentiment on our cards. When my friend ordered ten of my cards she said - I would like to have cards without a sentiment so that I can make them my own...
So I refrained from putting a sentiment on these cards. The panels of glossy cardstock have been dabbed with a random inking of alcohol inks. Ginger, cranberry and eggplant. I always add a few drops of alcohol blender solution which is apparent by the 'rings' you see. I also made two in one go - that is a frugal way of using all the ink on the felt applicator.

The large butterfly is Penny Black. The set is called Butterfly Trio. I white embossed the image.

This is the smallest size of the butterflies. I love the depth that alcohol inks bring to a card.

We are having beautiful sunny, warm weather! Since we have a National holiday on Tuesday, that means four beautiful days to rest and gives thanks to the Lord for His Goodness and Kindness.

Flower Cascade

Hello everyone! I have been away in Spain - a beautiful spot next to the sea and it was the place where we held our Annual Meetings for the Mission work we do here in France. Had a wonderful time and miss it!

This card was made with alcohol inks, three colors, one pink and two greens: oregano, pesto and cranberry. I dabbed the inks onto glossy card stock and then... used my new stamp which I love! It's from Penny Black and its called Flower cascade.
I black embossed the image to secure it on the glossy paper.

That's all for today.
