Tricks and Treats with Alcohol Inks

Hi everyone!

Okay so I am finally takeing part in one of the Ginger Snaps challenges...I mean when I read that they were doing a challange using Alcohol Inks how could I not take part. As all my friends will tell you I am totally obsessed with Alcohol inks I use them in my craft projects every chance I get.....why it has been said if you sit still long enough I will alcohol ink you, lol!
So here are a few works I have done that feature Alcohol inks...enjoy!

Halloween Card
this card features Alcohol inks on
Embossed Glossy Card Stock

Le Chat ATC
I used Red Pepper & Butterscotch alcohol inks to
do the modeled background on glossy
paper, then stamped with Staz On

Parisian Nights Domino Pendents

I used egplant and pitch black alcohol inks and diluted with
the blending solution then did a rubon on top of that.

Fairy Land painted Glass

I used alcohol inks to do the background
on one side of the glass then flipped it over and used
Gecko Galz and Tim Holtz stamps and stamped
using Staz On ink.

Metal Christmas Tag

I embossed metal with cuttle bug embossing folder
then colored using Red Pepper & Butterscotch
alcohol inks.

So grab some Alcohol Inks and start creating some fun works you can give as gifts or keep for yourself!
