My First Play With Alcholol Inks

Well my alcohol inks arrived the other day, so I had a play with them last night. I used latte, ginger, caramel and cranberry inks to make the background. I used some distress ink pads on hammered cardstock (old paper and walnut stain). The dragonfly is a rubber stamp from Clevercut, and I used a graphite black Brilliance ink pad to stamp onto the alcohol inked background.

Whilst I love the effect I got, I don't like the card at all. I think I will try some ATC's and Fat Book Pages as I think these will look much better.


Hubby has took the boys out today, so I'm off for another play with my inks and stamps.
