YAY! Creating is so much fun and relieves stress. This is definitely different than what I have been creating. When I cleaned my craft room, I ran across my Tim Holtz alcohol inks. I decided to play with them today. I used butterscotch, cranberry and stream to create this background for my card. I stamped my leaves in archival black ink. They are from the Autumn Splendor stamp set by CTMH.
This card was pretty dark for me, so I spiced it up with some ocean cardstock and eyelets to match the blue in the background. Yes, those are eyelets I threaded on the black cord I tied around the background. I searched high and low to find something to match the ocean cardstock and found some eyelets (that I never use). I thought this was a cool way to use a product differently. What do ya think?
Do you own alcohol inks? Do you use them? You should. Do you know how? Would you like a tutorial? May be it would push me to start making them again.
