Alcohol Inks

My card today uses alcohol inks, a product I love crafting with but sometimes I forget about them. Then when I do start playing with them I can't seem to stop! So I pulled out my glossy card stock and a few blues, purples and teals to create some inky paper.

I die cut the Poppystamps Folium Frame from a paper with lighter hues of colour and the Daphne Butterfly was die cut from a more vivid piece of inky card stock.

To give the butterfly more loft I die cut a couple from purple vellum and attached it to the back of the inked butterfly.

The frame and butterfly were mounted onto wood grain paper for some texture and a simple sentiment was stamped in the corner with black ink and clear heat embossed.

I'm entering this card over at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Hip To Be Square Challenge here.

Thanks for dropping by today!


  1. I forget about my alcohol inks too. They do produce some stunning results, as you did here. I love the purple vellum butterfly under your inked one.

  2. Very pretty! Love the beautiful butterfly. Thanks for playing along Simon Says Stamp It's Hip to be Square Challenge. Gayatri xx
