Alcohol inked flowers.


Hi everyone, been a busy few weeks traveling and training for work so I am glad to finally relax in the craft room! 

I've been wanting to play along with quite a few challenges and have missed the deadlines so I'm on a mission now lol!

The theme at CAS Mixup Card Challenges is to use alcohol inks as one of your components.


I had some scraps of metal sheet in my snippets box that I diecut and pounced some alcohol inks on.
I used a purple, a yellow and an orange. I thought some tropical greenery would suit these colours.
My other elements are diecutting, distress inking to colour the greenery and dry embossing.

I'm also linking up to the snippets playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop. You only need one snippet to play along.

At AAA Cards the theme is summer fun. Time is nearly up so get in quickly if you want to play along!

  8. This is very pretty Cathy and the AI flowers and the sweet little fern like leaves go beautifully and love the circular frame with the black mat which makes them stand out really well, and the woodgrain embossing is perfect in the background. x
