Good evening Crafters!
So it's 14 degrees here which is balmy compared to the 7 degrees it was yesterday (felt like -9 with the wind chill). Yes, I know I live in Ohio AND it's January but even by Ohio standards it's cold!
The upside to the freezing weather is I stay inside ad craft :)
The other day I told you I would be back to share a card I made with alcohol inks. First I have to tell you why after ten years I decided to try alcohol inks. Answer: Jess Larsen. The card she created here was so super cute. I have to admit that just like Jess I was intimidated by the alcohol inks. However, last week I found myself in the middle of a Jo-Ann Fabrics 50% sale with $100 in gift cards so . . . . here we are :) um they are totally fun and easy and I have no idea why I wanted so long to get them!!
I also created these for CAS-ual Fridays challenge: Long and Short (i.e. a card with one long side and one short side).
First I used my alcohol inks to create a marbled type background on some acetate. After i tried out all the colors I bought (I have too!!) I die cut some hexagons out of each color. I backed them with white and popped them up on dimensional adhesive.
After I die cut the hexagons I was left with these colored acetate strips cut into a banner so . . .
I made another card. Which I have to admit I ended up liking better than the first ha! The sentiment originally said "you make me smile" so I masked to just use the word smile.
Thanks for stopping by and big thanks to Jess for the enabling :)
