A Wonderful Afternoon!

Had a wonderful afternoon at A Maze of Memories playing with alcohol inks etc. And no, I didn't get messy as gloves were provided - the messiness came later!
Today was a demo day with Lindsay Mason.
Lindsay showed us lots of techniques using alcohol inks and distress inks. Then Diane and I both did the Make and Take. I turned my card into a Christmas card when I got home..having bought some new stamps..and the sticky backing...my b'day season really is stash filled (I promise to do a post soon!).


We created the background and  dyed the flowers and the ribbon with alcohol inks. When I got home I stamped the tree and sentiment (using archival ink) and sprinkled glitter over dots of glossy accents. This is where it got messy - black ink and glitter is so not a good look on fingers!

Please check out Lindsay's blog, where she has lots of ideas and techniques...and a fabulous giveaway!

STUNNING colour - beautiful card. I'm sure black inky and glittery fingers will be all the rage in night clubs across the country!
