ALCOHOL INKS, A STRAW AND CARD WINNER!

Hello and welcome...
Following yesterday's cards of wintery scenes I thought it best to have a splash of colour today and here is the card!

A very quick card to create, you will never make two the same and ideal for the younger people in your life, or, change the sentiment and it would be suitable for virtually anyone!

INGREDIENTS:
  • DL white card base
  • black and white foundation card by Creative Expressions (CE)
  • chrome gloss foundation card (CE)
  • alcohol inks in; cool pearl, lemonade and raspberry ~ Tim Holtz/Ranger
  • birthday wishes die ~ Expressions Collection ~ Sue Wilson/(CE)
  • cosmic shimmer dries clear PVA glue
  • one straw


  • You must use gloss card for this technique otherwise the alcohol inks will just soak into ordinary card and leave 'dollops' of the ink
  • I cut a piece of white gloss card 7.75" x 3.25" then dropped some raspberry alcohol ink onto it and gently blew the ink using a straw.  I did this several times with the raspberry then the same with the cool pearl and finally lemonade
  • The ink dries practically instantly!
  • I mounted the gloss card onto a very thin black mat then adhered it onto the base card
  • I die cut 2 of the sentiments in black card and one in white.  Glued the 2 black together then glued this onto the white card, overlapping slightly, to give a shadow effect

The winner of Saturday's card is
