Thanks

Hi bloggers!  This is probably the most simple card I have ever done, but I just wanted to show off this stunning background!  I made this shortly after returning from CHA in  January.  I was watching a demo by Tim Holtz and saw a sample tag he had done laying on his table.  He explained that he used the new Silver Sparkle alcohol ink card and dripped alcohol inks from the top edge so they ran down the card.  I loved the way it looked so I had a go on my own.  I used Sunshine Yellow and Raspberry alcohol inks over the Silver Sparkle card and this was the result.  I used the top layer die of the Alice set to die cut it and saved all the little squares.  I die cut the Alice again in white and added it to a sticky adhesive sheet and paper pieced all the squares back into it.  I cut the Thanks die in black and added it to a white shadow and glued it onto the card.  The card was completed with white and black mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 5 1/2"  x 5 1/2" in size.   All for now Sue x

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, what an amazing creation, love the idea of the technique for the alcohol inks, what a brilliant pattern it has created, the Alice die is so versatile and finally the size it just perfect too.

Stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx
