Playing with Alcohol......

Inks that it is!   Sunday I was surfing the net and came across Ranger Industries website and on their project page I found this project using Alcohol inks.  It made me want to try it... so I dragged out the inks and had a play.

Alcohol background

I started by putting some colours and bronze mixative onto my craft mat and laid and twisted the card.  As it didn't have quite the look I wanted, so I pounced some more inks onto the piece.  Much happier with it then.  I cut out the floral oval from Spellbinders and trimmed around the dots to make the centre panel.  I cut another oval out of white glossy card and layered the two together.  The sentiment is from Penny Black.   The base background was made by adding Pearl, Copper and Silver Mixatives onto one felt pad and pouncing onto the glossy card.  Love the beautiful shiny look it made.  Added all the layers to a blue base.  I punched out some butterflies from a slightly lighter part. 

And now I'll share a cute card I made for a commission.... the request was something Kiwiana...

I found a pile of images from the internet and put them together on  a card.  Added the sentiment.  The person who ordered it was thrilled with it...It was for her sister in Singapore...

Off to ice the cupcakes I made for my team's planning day tomorrow.  We are having an all day meeting and going out for lunch at an Indian restaurant near our office.
