The Magic of Christmas


Hello Everyone,

I bought several bottles of alcohol inks about a year ago, but have not used them. So, this was a good opportunity to take them out. I enjoyed playing with these inks and will have to get them out more often. I love how the colors blended together on this card. The inks that I used were: Stream, Slate, Meadow, and the Pearl Mixatives along with the blending solution.

I had lots of fun playing with my alcohol inks and this is what I came up with for the
Hero Arts Flickr Group challenge (November2010A). I am submitting this card to Two Peas for Jennifer McGuire's Thinking Inking Challenge (Week 5, project 1). The die that I used is called “Asian” which comes from the "Lacy Labels" Cricut cartridge. Stamps used are Hero Arts: Magic of Christmas CL462.
Thanks for stopping by and I appreciate the comments. Have a great day and God bless.
