Two Paper Divas~ Fun with Alcohol Inks

Good Morning everyone, I'm back to share with you another double feature for

using Feathers and A Cup of Kindness. I have two cards using Alcohol Ink blended backgrounds with these two stamp sets...I must say, these are two of my fav's!!! :o)

For the card bases, I dabbed different alcohol inks onto glossy cardstock. This is a fun technique and you can stomp your blending tool all around. hehehehe

For the first card, I went with pastel pink and blue. Not a normal color palette for me but was quite pleased with the softness of it. :o)
I stamped the cup and sentiment from the  A Cup of Kindness set with Jet Black Archival Ink. I then inked up white ribbon with Spun SugarDistress Stain as I didn't have a pale pink ribbon...Distress Stains are great for matching up Ribbon and embellishments to you projects. ;o) 
A vintage button finished it off. 

Here's the inside:

For the second card, I mixed pink and purple alcohol inks and in my second ink up...I got those dark spots...but I liked them, so kept this piece. Sometimes, it's the errors that turn into beauties! ;o)
 I stamped the feathers and sentiment from the Feathers set with the black archival ink. and just added some "CrushedGrape" Nuvo Crystal Drops for some dimension. 

Here's the inside:

I used a tricolor pigment ink pad, and LURVE how the feather came out:

There you have it, some CAS cards that are both quick and fun to do! :o)  
Thank you for stoppin' by and be sure to join me next Friday to see another fun make using this September's NEW RELEASES!! ;o)

Faery Ink~ Never Let Fear...

Good Morning Crafty Friends, I'm here to share a Journal Page I created for

using the newly released Calavera Rosa. I think this stamp is GORGEOUS and I couldn't wait to use it. :o)

 I started with twinkling H20's onto Watercolor paper. I then used Black gesso over Joggles Star Flowers Stencil. I left the center clear it just framed the image. :o)

I colored the image with Spectrum Noir Markers  keeping with the Pink and Black color palette  and used Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle Pen on the Black around the eyes and nose. I then fussy cut her out:
A self-created sentiment finished off the journal page. :o)

I sure hope I've inspired you to get crafty today!
