Playing with Alcohol Inks

I have been doing a bit of playing with stuff I have in my stash - and decided to try my alcohol inks by Tim Holtz. I have six of these: Faded Jeans, Antique Linen, Barn Door, Scattered Straw, Forest Moss, Vintage Photo.  I used the dabbed thingy and a sheet of shiny white from SU and created a background, and then stamped it with a wide variety of SU images from a number of different sets using StaysOn inks.  The sentiment is from Verve Stamps - just arrived in the mail yesterday from their sale last month! 

I then made six cards from the one sheet.  I was trying for a shabby vintage look but I am not that good at it.  Anyway, here they are - took me all afternoon. The flowers are most probably Prima and from the stash and so is the bling (Kaiser).  The card stock is SU and the shimmer is SU's Smooch gold mist. I used the SU punch to create paper lace and various Spellbinders Nestabilities and Embossing Folders. Everything else is from the stash.

I am going to enter these in the Paper Creations Ink Challenge #8 which is Vintage or Distressed Look - mine are sort of vintage!

Wow Susan - all of these cards are just amazing. I'm so impressed with the skill in which you were able to cut your ONE sheet into 6 and still have each card look like the background was done specifically for THAT card. Fabulous job.

Beautiful work on the masterboard for this set of cards. Love how the colours work together for the background and the collage stamping looks good too. My favourite one is the last one you showed. Looks like you made a small dent in your stash with this lot. Cheers.
