INKY NOEL


I had a play with alcohol inks yesterday in order to make bases for a batch of ATCs.

I used stream, denim, stonewashed and silver which I dabbed all over the cards. I then stamped the tree and word using archival ink. The beads were white so I coloured those with the alcohol inks and stuck them to the bottom of the card with glossy accents. I managed to find enough oil on water effect snowflakes which again I stuck down with glossy accents covering the little hole in the middle with a seed bead. I then fastened the snowflake brad using my crop a dile.

As usual, I made a mess and had fun.

I've learnt something! - I didn't know you could use glossy accents to stick things down. Thanks for that tip. I love the blue frosty feel of this one. x

Oh, that's a beautiful looking Christmassy card - love the effects you can achieve with alcohol inks & it's great to get messy sometimes, isn't it?

Hi Joanne, so good to meet you yesterday - I hope we get to meet up again. Or at least swap again. This ATC is even better "in the flesh" I love it, thank you so much. S xxxx
