xmas card 7


No 7 in my series of quick and easy xmas cards to make.

This was my first ever play with alcohol inks....OMG so much fun.
When everyone says how easy it is to use, who would've thought that it really is quick and easy to use!
The santa is stamped over the top of some glossy card that has been worked with 3 colours of alcohol inks...
just remember to use ink that is dye based (stayzon ink will spread and run)
The yellow ink was used on glossy card and layered underneath to bring out the vibrant colours in the centre.
Enjoy!

I've just been admiring all your gorgeous cards Dot and you're ahead of me I think!
I have the makings of quite a lot but have to do a lot of cutting and sticking.
Good luck with your followers too as you certainly deserve more!
Hugs, Fliss xx
