Recently I went to my local "Caligraphy Guild's" workshop on "Alcohol Ink Techniques". One of the members showed many samples of different techniques and provided us (12 excited crafters) with different papers and alcohol inks. Did we ever have fun. We all went home with several samples to make into finished projects. Here is just a small section of one of my pieces. I used glossy paper and Adirondack Alcohol Ink on my sample.. I dropped the ink onto my paper and blew with a straw straight down onto my drops for very interesting "Pops" of colorful splats :-) I just added Die Cutting, Dimensionals and Heat Embossed Congratulations for my finished card.
My card will be the 8th grade graduation card for my great niece Makoa :-)
