Alcohol Inks

Two more cards made today both using Alcohol Inks, Pesto, Currant & Caramel.
The card on the right was put through my Cuttlebug using Perfect Paisley Embossing Folder, backing paper is from K & CO - Classic K McKenna range.
I added flowers from my stash in tones to match the card with a small pink brad for the centre of the flower.
The card on the left has the Floral Fantasy Embossing Folder and Happy Birthday Folder attached to backing paper from K & CO Hydrangea Stripe pad.
To add a little sparkle Red Gems have been added, again from my stash.
I have quite a few K & Co paper pads which I intend to use this year.

I have entered these into Craftyanns challenge blog.
I hope Ann thinks they are acceptable as this is my first try with Alcohol Inks.

I am also entering Cynthia's challenge 85 which is to recycle. My recyled piece is the biscuit wrapping paper plus glossy card left over from other cards to which I added Alcohol Inks for depth.
Hoping Cynthia likes my entry

Beautiful. I like the way you've used the paisley cuttlebug folder to echo the background paper on the first card. xx

Ann thinks they're more than acceptable Christine - they're gorgeous! Aren't AIs addictive though? Thank you for entering CACB with them.

I love the colour combo on these lovely cards Christine. They are gorgeous.

I've just been catching up as I think Mr Blogger has been acting up again. I joined your followers during the Stampman Blog Hop but your post following this one is the first I've been notified of. This seems to happen randomly with the odd blog I follow and is such a nuisance, but at least I've caught up now.
