Floating Alcohol Ink



Hello bloggers!  While it is probably a bit odd to some of you to see a truly clean and simple card come from my hands, I just felt like this technique required it to show off the beauty of the finished piece.  It is great fun to do so I hope you will watch the video and give it a go yourself!

The winner of this week's Wednesday Card Giveaway is:

Theresa G!!!

Congratulations!  Please email me at americansue1@gmail.com to confirm your address and claim your card.








The finished dimensions are 6 1/2" x  7 1/2" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Morning Sue. There is nothing unusual or strange about today's sample. Those that have been following you since you started this blog - what, about 5 - 7ish years now maybe (I found you just over 2 years ago) have seen so many changes in the designs of your work,from the Spellbinder days to now, your own collection with your name on how incredible is that ? So nothing ever surprises us when we open the door to your lovely blog each day our eye's just get bigger our mouths wider and our WOW'S louder oh, and our bank accounts smaller, so keep doing what you do because we love looking forward to whatever comes next, and whatever is coming next. A lovely soothing, calming start to our day, with a more masculine colour change in the background this would make the ideal CAS male card.
Many congratulations to Theresa G. What an honour it is to own the gorgeous Wednesday card, another lucky 'blog friend' to join the club.
Sending my usual hugs to you Sue and Sam. Have a great day xx

Muriel Kelly said...

Hello Sue and all
What a fabulous technique, I will have to seek out my alcohol inks, I didn't know they could be used this way either. I can see so many lovely colour combinations behind your dies, specially the background dies, mind is whirring again. After the school holidays I will be playing with so many of your inspiring ideas.
Congratulations Teresa, enjoy your beautiful Sue original
Have a great weekend

Another technique to try - don't have any alcohol inks, but think may just need some! Really like the wee die cut into the larger one. Your video, as ever, much appreciated, Sue.
Pet pals - thanks for asking. Little Beauty (black of course) was a feral cat who never grew so is about the size of a 5 month kitten. She still doesn't like being touched but needs must (plus sedation at vets).... slight kidney problems and anaemia, so B12 jabs and fingers crossed. Thankfully will live to fight another day, but she doesn't have any 'spare' fat to sustain her - only 2.2kg. Was very fearful and still am, but for the moment she is happy enough and eating.
Well done to Theresa on the card win.
Hugs to all, especially Tracy and our poorly friends.

Annie Pennington said...

Good morning Sue. Fab card today as always. I love the colours, they blend together beautifully. I always struggle when I make cards with a lot of white space.

I shall watch the video a bit later when I put my feet up, literally... my ankles and feet are swollen again so I have to elevate them. Hopefully I can avoid getting cellulitis, fingers crossed.

Have a lovely weekend everyone.

Clean neat and simple, Sue i love it .
Well done to Theresa enjoy your beautiful card .

Thank you for your continued good wishes for Andrew , he was admitted to Hospital again yesterday as the fluid is still a big issue ,the consultant said if the fluid was infected they would have to do a small operation , however after tests etc it turns out that Andrew has a tube that is infected so he was allowed home with antibiotics ,he has to go back on Monday.
We just hope that the tablets do the work and he will be able to start the chemo.

Sending big hugs to all

Hi Sue,
Beautiful card and great video! When I saw the effects from the alcohol ink on the card it made me want to say, "Groovy Baby,". Yes, sadly I'm a child of the 60s...please note I said CHILD lol.

Norah McPhee said...

Good morning Sue and the Wilsonettes,
This is a bonnie clean and simple card Sue and i think that our Tracy could just use some of what it conveys at this time. I love the softness of the colours that are behind the hugs and it shows that it doesn't need to be strong and vibrant to make an impact. Thank you Sue and a lovely card that just says everything it needs without needing to shout.
Well done Theresa G on winning this weeks card, that was a really bonnie card and i hope you have it's place all ready for it.
Sorry that it wasn't your turn Theresa W but it will be one day. Congratulations on becoming an Auntie, have fun looking for those tiny clothes for the babies and the cuddles that are just waiting upon you opening your arms. Twins are normally smaller than other babies because there is the two of them, i was 5lb and my twin Jim was 4lb 7oz and there was 46 minutes between us. The doctors kept telling mum that she was only having the one baby as she was too small to have two in there. They were trying to get Mum cleaned up and checked over after Jim came along when they discovered ooops they had made a mistake and there was another baby waiting it's turn to come. The most surprising thing about it all was when we moved to Sauchie and started after the christmas holidays to find another girl not only born on the same day as us but she was born inbetween our births. Enjoy the babies' and their cuddles.
Pam flower, i am so very proud of Rory as he does have things that are more like scaling Mount Everest to overcome but he is doing it one at a time and getting more control of himself. The thing that i wish is that i could get him to join in with others more but he is very much a loner and finds it difficult to join in with others, although if he finds someone a bit like himself he takes to them like a fish to water and it's trying to prise him away then from his new found friend. Thank you for thinking about my boy Pam it is really kind of you.
Sending hugs to Tracy who could do with them wrapped around her and her sister, Andrew and i hope the antibiotics take effect Elaine for him over the weekend as your boy isn't half going through the mill the now, to Mick who i hope is improving even if it slowly by each passing day and all the rest of the Wilsonettes that could really do with, want or need some, the hugs are there for you all,
love and crafty hugs
Norah (glenochil)

fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, a lovely clean and simple card. Love the technique using inks in water and then adding microbeads, it makes a great background. My Christmas Shadow Box die arrived earlier and I am going to have a little play this afternoon.

Congratulations Theresa G on being the Wednesday Winner, enjoy your card.
Elaine - Hope the antibiotics work quickly for Andrew.
'P' - Little Beauty is really little - 2.2kg is tiny, no wonder you are so fearful. Fingers crossed that the B12 jabs do the job.

Lorraine Eastwood said...

Good afternoon lovely Sue and her crafty crew!

Clean and simple cards aren't usually my thing but after watching the creative process on your video I could be a convert:-)....normally, if it doesn't have a flower, glitter and pearl embellishments then it's unfinished in my world. However, the fact of the matter is that this delightful card doesn't need any of that. I love the water bath technique with the alcohol inks, it's so effective.....and adding the micro beads is a stroke of pure genius that gives the background not just colour but texture too. The Hugs die is fantastic and suitable for males and females of all ages....I have it but ashamedly haven't used it yet:-(. I think that I will definitely be giving this little stunner a trial run.
What am I going to do with my time when the tennis has finished tomorrow ? I'm not sure if my Mum always shares my enthusiasm though since she's spent the past three hours or so dead to the world:-)....I think that she might make a bigger effort for Andys game though.
I have been repeatedly, and rather rudely, interrupted by two rather sodden pussies wandering in and out of the rain....I don't know if they are peculiar in their joy at being rubbed within an inch of their lives with an old towel:-) So a rather quiet and un eventful afternoon.....
P, Little Beauty sounds so dinky, she's half the size of my Darcey, who isn't a big cat either. I think that you must have a season ticket to your local vets:-) I hope that the B12 injections help your baby with her anaemia and that her other ailments subside....I hate to hear of a furry four paws being unwell, I'd much rather suffer the illness instead, hope she perks up soonxxx
Elaine, sorry to hear of Andrews trip to the hospital, hope the medication puts an end to his woes so that he can proceed with the next stage of his treatment, hugs to you bothxxxx
Annie, how awful for you to have oedema, it can really get nasty and rather painful to boot....I had cellulitis a couple of years ago that developed into blood clots on my lung so I do hope that you don't develop it, keep your legs elevated above your waist if possible, it can helpxxx
Hugs to Tina and Mick, hope you are continuing to improvexxx
Hugs to my poorly bestie Yvonne, life's just not the same without your acid tongue dear, get well soon dearxxxxx
Cuddles to all my blog buddies, take care and I wish you well and a happy weekendxxxx

OMG...you are amazing. I've been crafting for a number of years now and I've used alcohol inks a lot, but I have never seen the floating technique done before. Learned something new today--thank you. My crafting friend is coming over again next week and we were going to play with the alcohol inks, so this was perfect timing.

Loved the video and loved your card. (big smile)

Littlelamb said...

Lovely card Sue. Haven't tried this technique so must look out the alcohol inks and give it a go. I have the Hugs die and love it. My new Christmas dies arrived yesterday but haven't had time to play yet. Been out all day. Whacked now. Thank you for sharing this with us.

At last, back to reasonably fast internet and the blogosphere. I have now to catch up on nearly three weeks of your blogs. Discovered I missed out on a chance to win your new dies, congrats to the winners, commiserations to me!!!!!

Another very interesting and very effective technique, now I just need to spend some pennies on alcohol inks! Love the simplicity of this card. The technique makes it ideal for a man's card where something fancy is not appropriate.

Teresa

Helen Bell said...

Hi Sue and everyone

A gorgeous card Sue, not had chance to watch the video yet, but will definitely do soon. Nice clean and simple card with beautiful colours coming through.

I have been to the craft show at Doncaster racecorse today, which is why I am so late commenting. I bought some bargain dies, 2 of Sue's, 1 Spellbinders and two small Presscut ones. Some Cosmic shimmer PVA and some foundation card. I joined in the make and takes , making a parchment butterfly, and a spray of blossoms from paste.

I was pleasantly surprised to see John Lockwood demo'ing there. He didn't have much room, but he was so nice to the people watching him and asking questions. He has a lovely calmness about him, not to mention being very talented.

I am hoping to return tomorrow to hunt out more bargains. It was great to see Sue's dies everywhere, especially the new Christmas collection.

Love Helen xxx

Helen Bell said...

Hi , Sorry Sue for second comment, but forgot to wish Theresa G congratulations on her Wednesday card win.
