Alcohol-Inked Die and Spellbinders Winner Announcement

Hello friends!!

I have been a fan of alcohol ink for many many years...that is,
before it became popular again as of late.
There is a re-surge of energy and enthusiasm for more alcohol ink creations.
I had collected a few items in the last little while, namely,  silver and gold mixatives and alcohol ink markers. Today's card doesn't require anything fancy. All you need is.....well, alcohol inks.


I created a piece of colorful card stock with alcohol inks (listed at the end of the post).


Once I made the die cut, it was easy to arrange it on card stock and add the sentiment.


The vine image is from Mosaic Vine Etched Die

The sentiment is from
 Spellbinders Blessings Vine Frame Etched Die

You can use any type of ink with the die, that is the beauty of using dies.
I do love the organic and unexpected element in alcohol inks.
It's time to announce the Spellbinders January Blog Hop Winner!
Spellbinders offer to give my blog readers a chance to win $25 Gift Card to their online store

I love your card. I just purchased the metallics to use with alcohol inks. I have never tried this technique. I am a relatively new card maker, and have never played with alcohol inks. So this is perfect inspiration for me. Congratulations to Sue D.
