Loving The Alcohol....

Alcohol ink, that is! 
A few days ago, I was not feeling particularly motivated about making cards/gift sets for the latest Paper Crafts publication call. So in order to get myself out of the creative slump, I decided to just PLAY with something that I like. Thanks to Michael's coupons, I had acquired some more alcohol inks.....you know, these inks (just like the hobby) are addictive!  

Got your sunshades ready?
caution: the following photo can be glaring!

Ready?



Still here...?



Are you sure?




Like.... REALLY SURE?






Too late!  I did warn you....( LOL)
 you brighten my day-001
I swiped the alcohol inks onto the Glossy paper and then cut up the color strips...assemble, then stamp--voila! This card is a little fun twist from this one.
  Thanks for stopping by! I hope this card brightens your day! 
 Happy weekend!
