Hello, Hi, Hey There

Hi Crafty Friends,

Today I am sharing four cards I created recently using Alcohol inks and the new Tim Holtz Alcohol Ink Air Blower. Of course when you pull out the alcohol ink, it's hard to just create one background. I really love the air blower which makes it so much easier to move the inks around on the Yupo paper. So after playing with different colors I had to use them all to make up four cards.

For my first card I used alcohol inks in Dandelion, Sunset Orange and Watermelon.  I trimmed the panel to fit the bottom portion of a card and then used Crafter's Companion's Hello Edge'abilities die set for the sentiment at the top of the card.

I used Elizabeth Craft Designs Leafy Branch 6 Wheat to add something over the alcohol inked background.

For my second card I used alcohol inks in Citrus; Lettuce; Mermaid; Juniper. I then used one of the border dies from MFT stamps Stitched Scallop Basic Edge to create a fancy border at the bottom of the panel.

I added a "hello" sentiment which is from The Stamp Market. The stamped sentiment is from a Hello stamp set from Paper Rose Studio.

I die cut two dragonflies using Elizabeth Craft Designs Dragonflies die set.

For my third card I used alcohol inks in Aquamarine; Juniper; Pool; Pistachio. 

I added a large "Hi" die from The Stamp Market and also added the stamped sentiment which is from Altenew's Hello and Hugs stamp set.

For my final card I used alcohol inks in Pink Sherbet; Coral; Flamingo; Wild Plum. I used another of the border dies from MFT Stamps Stitched Scallop Basic Edge die set to die cut the fancy edge at the bottom of the alcohol inked panel.

I added the "Hey There" sentiment using the Fabulous Phrases die set from Concord and 9th.

For the inside of all of my cards I used a sentiment from Concord & 9th's Retro Petals Turnabout stamp set.
