I have a couple of friends who want to learn all about stamping and creating cards. So we sometimes get together on a Sunday afternoon and I demo a technique and then make a card with them.  This Sunday the topic is alcohol inks.  I made  a bunch of backgrounds to demo how differently they turn out and also made a few cards to show how to use the backgrounds.  I used yupo paper (translucent and regular), Ranger AI and copic refills.  Am also going to show them how to add a little foil for some sparkle.

The green background was die cut with a wonky rectangle die and I used two layers of vellum for the SSS leaves.  I made the frame for the blue one with two HA rectangle dies.  The little sentiment is from Betsy Veldman's new line of stamps.
I am entering the green card in the SSS Flickr challenge #124 - "anything goes" is the theme. 
Looking forward to a fun Sunday afternoon with friends.  Thanks for stopping by.



  1. Hope you had fun, Betty! These are both beautiful & you've made me want to use my AIs!

  2. I bet you wowed them with your technique get together. The cards look fabulous. One of these days I am going to have to get mine out again. I just got a trio of the pearl ones.

    I love how the white looks great against the blue shades and the vellum leaf is fantastic on the green. Gorgeous cards Betty.
