(2020 c004) Alcohol Ink Birthday


Alcohol Ink background was made following Mindy Eggen’s Wispy Alcohol Ink Tutorial found on Jennifer McGuire’s Blog. (2020 c004) Alc Ink Bday i.jpg I used Yupo “Medium” Paper by Legion from Hobby Lobby Ranger Alcohol Inks and Brass Pinata Alcohol Ink.  I embossed a frame into the middle of the background with my new die set called  Double Stitched Rectangle Dies by Kat Scrappiness.  The sentiment was cut from gold cardstock with Pink & Main Happy Birthday PNM200 .

As you can see in the photo on the right I cut a frame for another alcohol ink  background for the inside with Sizzix Movers & Shapers Die – Postage Stamp FrameAs you can see in the photo blow I cut 2020 and 20 with a discontinued Tim Holtz die set called Tim Holtz Alterations Sizzix Thinlits  661187 Stencil NumbersI had already written inside the card to my 20 year old grandson, so I had to Photoshop it out at the bottom (That’s why it looks weirdly white).OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAII I had
