CAS with Alcohol Inks


This week it's the Spotlight over at Crafty Cardmakers and the challenge is to use Alcohol Inks. Now I love these cos they are usually messy but this week I decided to play along with last week's theme of Clean and Simple as at the moment I'm really into this (don't worry - it won't last, lol). I stamped the sentiment (from Hero Arts Anytime Messages) directly onto a white card blank and added a bit of ribbon between the lines. Then I coloured glossy card with Shell Pink and Red Pepper Alcohol inks using the blender tool, stamped the butterfly(Clear Choice 20 Best Friends stamps) in Black Onyx Versafine and clear embossed it. I cut out the butterfly and popped it on to the top with foam pads. There you go, clean AND simples. Go check out the other DT cards and see just what you can do with these lovely inks.
I am entering this into the following challenges:
Play Date Cafe - Black and white and pink or copper or gold
