Alcohol Ink Press

This is one of my favourite techniques from Technique Junkies. I stamped onto acetate and embossed, then applied alcohol inks to the back of the acetate, gives a rich colouring and looks so great on collage stamps. I recently bought the cogs and the keys from America so just had to use them to set the card off. The letters ART were cut from my Tim Holtz alphabet die, love the look.

Birdcage Birthday Card

For the BG of this card I used a piece of white cardstock, spritzed it with a light coating of water and coloured with Tim Holtz worn lipstick distress ink. Waited until it was dry and then crumpled it into a small ball, unfolded and then coloured the ridges with the same colour stamp pad. The stand is made with spellbinder's dies and the birdcage and bird is from a TH die.
