time for a show

hi all
my mother rings me last minute and asks like mothers do, can you please whip up a card for peters 60th birthday party tomorrow? oh course i said fine no probs shouldnt be too much of a problem. well then the list of requirements come. now the card has to be big enough for 3 families to write on, it needs to me masculine and not wishy washy, it needs to be fancy as it is a 60th afterall. well at 1.30am i finished the card lol. i stressed that it wasnt good enough and well i ended up with this. it will have to do as well i just dont have time to whip up another one lol. i have used my alcohol inks of course and then used various stamps to get a vintage feel to the card. there are a few tim holtz ones in there that you probally reckonise. i would really love your opinion on it.

ok now i am just going to show you the other little plays i had with the alcohol inks.

this one was using autumn colours well that is what i am calling them lol. the writting turned out lovely on it.

this one i used purples and pinks and then used a slighty darker purple to stamp the words. i really love the look you get with the inks. they are sooooooo pretty.


this was such an experiment. i used them on a canvas to see if it would look ok. i am really happy with the results actually. they are more matt then normal but i think with some other art work on it we can turn it into a masterpeice lol.

luv ya's
