Face to face with alcohol inks

While I'd got alcohol inks to make my inchies, I thought I'd make a tag for Dragons tag it on 23: 'face to face' using alcohol inks and/or markers.

I used red pepper, wild plum and denim inks with a touch of blending solution and then stamped a couple of faces (foam stamps from QVC) with black dye ink. I couldn't get a photo because of flash shine, so this is a scan - looks better irl - I hope you can see the outline of the faces. I just added the pieces of ribbon.

The colours used are right for 365 cards day 262.

It's also good for TGIF 112: 'face of a femme fatale'

Teen terrors!

Cute card Thursday 87 is 'teen terrors!' - I hope this is OK for a teenage son (not mine!)

Ages ago on 365 cards for day 104 the challenge was 'Imagine this: grass' (I'm still playing some of the challenges I missed on there). I used some beige background that is a bit like straw and coloured it with an ink pad.

BF November inchies

We've been up to Guy's again today for John's foot health appointment, so I haven't had an opportunity to do very much, but I've got my inchies done for this month's swap on BF, the subject being fireworks.

I used alcohol inks for the background, silver and gold metallic Sakura pens and lots of gems:

Across the miles

Crafty Ann challenge 2 is 'black and white and one other colour' - this is a simple card with some neglected DCWV paper, an acetate 'family' circle and some dymo taped sentiments.


And 'across the miles' reminds me that I need to write and get ready for posting those cards that need to go abroad.
