A Colorful Collage Card with Alcohol Inks

I have been playing with alcohol inks and collage stamps lately. This was one of the cards I made. Notice how the yellow bird was colored? I was quite happy when I had the Eureka moment! 

Note: you have to allow yourself to enjoy playing with inks and stamps...
When you do, magic happens (just saying-- wink!)
Happy Birthday (Garden Love)
I have said this before and I will say it again.....

"Life is like playing with alcohol inks, you never know what you're gonna get." close-up
Supplies : Garden Love , Kind Words (Penny Black), Cup O' Joe (Hero Arts), Alcohol Inks, Glossy Paper by Ranger

If you would like to see how this type of card is made, I will have a tutorial right here in this blog on 
June 29th (Midnight Eastern Time).
Thanks for stopping by!
