CASE Study #115 --take 2!

Over the weekend, I was again very inspired by Angeline's work over CASE Study #115 . I decided to try it with alcohol inks.

I created the a background in various shades of yellow. (note to myself: need to get more alcohol inks!!).  I cut the paper into strips and arranged them accordingly. Then STAMP with the CAS-ual Friday's flowers from Truth Is. The sentiment is from SRM Stickers.

 Here is my card....
Sending Prayers
inspired by these beauties!
 A few of you asked me to do a tutorial with alcohol inks. Well, I felt that I am not knowledgeable enough to share just yet. I consulted my in house doctor about this stamping request. Dr. John said the secret to successful alcohol inking is--sip and stamp.
Hope you find that helpful ;)

You have always done wonders with these inks, and you've done it again. I love the artsy, fluid look and (tho I am typically not a yellow fan) the colors are stunning. What a kick in the pants you are living with, too!

Just dawned on me... maybe we should alert you that alcohol inks last longer if you don't sip them...
