New Technique...


As we all know I am a technique / tool junkie..its an addiction and I need help :)

Recently I was on YouTube watching videos (enabling me to purchase more!!) and I came across this video -

It blew my mind..

I have been spending my birthday money on lots of new goodies - alcohol inks were on the list, so I thought I'd have a go.

I am really happy with the 2 cards I made, the inks look awesome on the acetate and it made me brave enough to play with them on other paper as well - more on that later in the week.

The headline card today was made by cutting a 3x3 square section of my acetate creation and attaching to the card with mini staples. I die cut fabric circles and added a blingy fabric flower, that I removed from a paperclip (image below shows what they normally look like) -

I am pretty pleased with the die cutting of the fabric - this a new one for me - finally putting the Big Shot to the test!

Here is my second card - very simple - in part because I LOVE the patterns that I ended up with.

They are a little bit weird / unusual, but I think they are fun.



  1. That looks fun!! I like to try new things too, but I always try them once and never again. Great job for trying - and yes, YouTube is an enabler!!

  2. Wow! this looks so much fun Claire… and the effect is very pretty! Love the gorgeous colours and the fab flower! ;-)
    Hope you've had a lovely Sunday!
    Big hugs

  3. Love your cards Claire,great colours! D'you know, alcohol inks are the one crafty thing I've never really enjoyed using! We've taught our workshops with them a few times but there's just something about them with me, lol! Hugs Carole Z xx

  4. This is so snazzy! I love it. My favourite is the bottom one as the drips are so drippy and petal like. You'll have to teach me that over Skype some time x
