This fortnight we are inviting you to share your travel themed birthday cards with us.
Since the Toppings are always optional, the only real rule for playing along is creating a birthday themed card. Easy peasy, right?
My alcohol lift ink pad arrived last week, so I was eager to go and have a play with my acohol inks and my new ink pad.
My waves strip was created by lifting off the alcohol ink from one of the panels I had created by spreading out the alcohol ink onto yupo paper using a paint brush. I had intended to use the entire panel for my card, but sometimes things don't turn out the way you plan, so in the end I fussy cut my waves strip and foam mounted it to another slightly lighter alcohol ink panel.
Before die cutting my sentiment (Poppy Crafts), I created my own wood paper by swiping two brown ink pads over a scrap of Neena Desert Storm cardstock. I layered it onto a brown die cut before adhering it to my background panel. I used the same brown cardstock for my mat.
