Get Inky with Alcohol Inks Blog Hop + Giveaway ($300 in Total Prizes!)

 


Welcome to MORE inspiration to Get Inky with Alcohol Inks

You should have arrived from Virginia Lu's blog. You can return to the start of the blog hop at any time HERE


Did you know you can use alcohol inks on foil or mirror card stock?


I've combined inks from the Sugarplums Alcohol Ink Bundle and the Tranquility Alcohol Ink Bundle and used a blower tool and embossing tool to move the ink on the paper. I then die cut the panel with a die from the Rounded Rectangles Die set.
I then layered the rectangle over cardstock embossed with the Classic Pinecones Slim Embossing Folder. Gold Washi tape and a bloom cut from Gold Mirror Cardstock with the Festive Clusters Die complete the card.

This next piece is created with Yupo paper and features the Sugarplums Alcohol Ink Bundle with a hint of Cloudy Sky from the Tranquility Alcohol Ink Bundle.






Thanks for stopping by!

Enjoy more inspiration at your next stop on the hop Bridget Casey

Prizes!
