Fun with alcohol inks!

Day 4 of Creative Chemistry 102 was all about alcohol inks! I've had a wide variety of these in my collection for YEARS and never know what to do with them...until now.   Here are 2 cards I made tonight actually rather quickly using 2 different techniques.

The first one, I made using the Ombre technique. I think this turned out pretty good for my very first try!


 The background used the ombre alcohol ink technique. Then, I stamped the snowman and the sentiment with black archival ink. The snowflakes were stamped using picket fence distress ink.  I'm entering this ( in the Moxie Fab World Color Media Challenge.

This second card, I used the Faded layers technique.


 For this technique, I think I 'oversaturated' a little bit with the blending solution...but I think overall it was a success. Next time I will not use as much!
I'd like to enter this card in a few challenges.
1.  Moxie Fab World The color media challenge (shocker right? I just love using different color mediums!!! Cath don't kill me when you get tired of visiting my blog!!!)
