Hi! DT member Carrie here – to share with you a couple of project life style cards that I created using Alcohol inks and the Honey Bee Scraps stamp set “Oh Snap”

These are Adirondack Alcohol inks by Tim Holtz The colors I chose to work with are Wild Plum, Purple Twilight and Watermelon.

First thing I did was get out my splat mat and squirt some color onto the mat. Then I added some blending solution and let it pool on my mat.  Then I just laid my plain white card on top of the ink and let it absorb into the surface of my card.

This is kind of a messy process, but with great results.  The colors are so rich and vibrant. The other great thing about alcohol inks is that they dry really fast so you can move onto the next step.
 I love the way the 3 colors created an ombre’ affect on my card so I decided to continue that look by stamping the same image three times in three different colors of Ranger Dye Ink.  I used the “OH SNAP” stamp set from Honey Bee Scraps 
I love all the sentiments in this set.  They are so personal and sweet.

So to complete my cards I matted them onto black card stock and then stamped the sentiment. I also embellished these cards with some black and white twine and some shiny sequins.

 Here is a close up look at my completed cards.
Thanks for stopping by today!
Happy Scrappin’
