I've been trying to sort my craft stash this afternoon but it is so easy to get distracted and that's exactly what happened ... instead of sorting I created! It all began when I came across some pieces of "experimental" alcohol ink backgrounds in vibrant pinks, oranges and yellows ... this is the result:
I love the vibrancy of alcohol inks but I'm never sure of how to use them ... so far all I've done is create "interesting" backgrounds! I punched out a number of different sized circles and adhered them to some card stock - some flat to the surface and others using foam squares. I die cut the sentiment five times in black card to give it more dimension.
I also wanted to join in the celebrations for Becca's, The Damsel of Distressed Cards, 30th Birthday celebrations. Becca creates amazing cards using mixed media techniques which I would love to emulate ... I just struggle and my cards always seem to end up just clean and simple. Becca has set up a challenge to celebrate her birthday with this mood board:
Hopefully I have captured the mood ... Happy Birthday Becca.
I'm also going to enter the Never-Ending Anything Goes Challenge at STAMPlorations as the Awesome die is on one of the new CUTploration dies ... it also seems approriate as Becca is one of their designers.
