my first alcohol ink projects

i am so happy to share some of my alcohol ink projects which i did for the first time. i love these babes because even if you're a first timer, you would be able to create anything under the sun. and it dries fast too!

i used a blank CD tin here. the good thing about alcohol ink is that there is nothing to prep. just squirt and dab and you're all go.


do you see the flower? i just dab inks on glossy paper, stamped a flower image and embossed it. i then cut it out and koala! there you have it. i also inked the buttons!


take a close look at the gold flourish. that's embossing and stamping. the leaves were made from stamping green and butterscotch colors on glossy paper and cut it out in leaf design.


these are cheap microscopic slides which i inked, again, stamp and emboss! the right side slide seemed a bit distressed, i followed a technique on the internet about mixing alcohol ink and UTEE.. turned out that way... lol.


this is another card which i made using the technique. note the different color patterns you can create!! plus the button too!!

thank you MLA-SH for bringing this in and most especially to babette who inspired me to start this...

Can I start hating you now, Cabbie? LOL. First pinasiklaban mo ako ng scrapping in 1 hr and 45 minutes. Tapos, while I'm still recovering from self-pity... bubulagain mo naman ako ng alcohol inks project! Di na ako babangon sa kinalaglagan ko sa upuan ko. LOL. Kidding aside, I love these new creations! Who would've think a demure lady like you would have all these passions locked up inside? Ang GANDA, trulily...

Seriously, you are one talented artist, my friend and sister in art. You never cease to amaze me. These projects are so gorgeous. Kahit itapat pa ito sa mga published work out there, it'd be among the best. Love yah, sis!
