Cardmaking

Tree-mendous!

Happy Saturday crafty people!  I’m back with an entry for the Male Room Challenge which has the prompt “nature”.

After Christmas I treated myself to a starter set of alcohol inks from Ranger and a pack with three additional colours.  I decided that I should have a play and after watching a couple of videos on you tube I created these backgrounds with the blending tool and blending solution.  I was pretty happy with them for a starter, I love the look and they are so shiny in person.

Even though it’s winter I decided to go with an autumnal theme for my card and to use that lovely orange background.  I also used a tree die from Sue Wilson and cut it from a dark brown and then cut the leaves from my alcohol ink backing.  It’s a really lovely effect and so glossy.

I think you get a bit better idea of the leaves in this picture.

I think I’m going to have fun playing with these inks!  Thanks for visiting Ginger Ninja Crafts, have you tried alcohol inks and if so, do you have a favourite technique?  I’d love to hear your top tips in the comments.
