Alcohol Inks

Received my QVC parcel on Friday - I bought the TSV of Tim Holtz alcohol inks etc. Decided to have a play this afternoon and this is one of the results ...................
Completely different to anything I have done in the past - I used the red and yellow inks with a touch of the gold then stamped over the top with the archival ink stamp pad with Inkadinkado stamps.
Found the stamping tricky as the surface is very glossy and therefore slippy.
Off to try the shrink plastic now ..................!!!!!!
Thanks for looking. x

Christmas Trees

At last I've found some time to make another card - trying to keep up with Snoflake's challenge over on Docrafts (one Christmas card a week)
I bought the tree stamp from Hobbycraft in their sale - it is by Kanban and in a set with other lovely trees and owls; really an all year round set not Christmas. They are stamped in green memento ink then trimmed down and covered in a sheet of double sided adhesive. I then added some Anita's tiny gem stones to the adhesive followed by a sprinkling of glamour dust.

They are then matted onto red mirror card - the striped paper is from Imaginisce.
Finished with a Paula Pascual circular greeting stamped in green and snoflake stamped in red with some more gems attached.
Thanks for stopping by - have a great weekend.

Another 'Snowy' Christmas Card

Loving this little stamp - made this card for the Christmas Challenge over on Docrafts
This time I used blue tones using Promarkers and a bit more bling!!
I love these Snowflakes - I bought them in Florida and have layered them up and secured with a brad.
The paper was just odds and ends from my stash (I think the patterned one is Dovecrafts from a couple of years ago). 
Enjoy the weekend!!
