Alcohol ink cards

Sorry I haven't been about much lately. There have been things that have taken up a lot of my thoughts and time.

I was asked by someone I know who has an art gallery to make some cards to sell in the gallery. She asked me to do alcohol ink cards, no words or die-cuts, on the theme of the seasons. Here is what I made.

Spring

Summer

Autumn

Winter

Uniko guest designer!


I'm delighted to be guest designer at Uniko for this month's challenge. We have fabulous photo inspiration with the optional twist of Birthday and here's what I made.


The flowers are the layered stamps from Uniko Beautiful Blooms III, the leaves are from the Nature's Treasures II set and the sentiment is from Simply Said Birthday.

Thanks so much for visiting my blog!

Merry and Bright


Just squeezing in a last minute card at CAS Christmas Challenge where the theme is "Ornament". 

Also linking up at Less Is More, where the theme is "Bring It Back" as I've used a die from a set of very old Stampin' Up ornament dies.

The die-cuts were painted with crackle paint and then coloured with alcohol inks.

Thank you so much for looking!

Untitled


Inspired by the lovely fresh colours at CAS Colours and Sketches.

Also linking up at Less Is More where the theme is "Bring Something Back".  Can't remember the last time I used the circles die and sentiment stamp, it must be at least two years!

Thanks for visiting my blog x

Popping in quickly to show you a card inspired by the Altenew April Inspiration Challenge.

I heat embossed the flowers and sentiment in Altenew platinum embossing powder and water-coloured. Used the sprays to make a little background.
