Alcohol and...

a straw! Nothing nicer that an ice cool drink in this summer weather (though dare I say it has just started to pour with rain here, not that that would stop me of course...LOL!). But that is not what I used on my card, I am talking alcohol inks, glossy card and a straw to create a background.

I used ideas from my Little Things workshop to this time make a card. This card was created for the Freshly Made Sketches and One Stop Craft challenge of flowers and ribbon.


  1. When i first read the title I thought...what a good idea...well it is the weekend! Great make - the colours really make the white pop! x

  2. Wow - just love that brilliantly coloured panel against the stark black and white - a fabulous card!

  3. LOL - well when you said Alcohol and a straw that was the last thing on my mind Clare but it works SO well. I love the bright colourful contrast with the plain white flower heads. BEEEEOOOOOOTIFUL!


  4. This is so, so cool!! Love the colors and this technique is fantastic! Glad you joined us this week at FMS!

  5. Oh, wow! What a cool technique! I love the pops of color on the focal panel and the ribbon treatment.
    Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches this week!

  6. Wonderful contrasts here Clare, beautiful colours and techniques on your topper.
