Alcohol Inks at Crafty Cardmakers

We've dusted down our alcohol inks over at Crafty Cardmakers and are using them for our "Spotlight challenge"  The spotlight challenge is all about using techniques, styles or products to show different ways of using them so if you're one of the people who avidly bought said alcohol inks at a show, splodged them around a bit and consigned them to the cupboard then now's your chance to master them!  The team have come up with some beautiful samples to inspire!

Here's mine :)
The background I made with Claudine Hellmuth sticky back canvas and I sprayed blending solution on before dropping blotches of cool peri ink which spread and turned shades of pink and purple.  I've smudged on some gold reinker for some bling.  The other background is pink and purple alcohol inks on glossy card and I've used a cuttlebug folder.
Image is Melinda Christmas Angel I got at Crafts & Me here coloured with promarkers, sakura stardust pens and quickie glue pen with glamour dust.

Thanks for looking :)
