A productive week

As I said in the last post I've been spending some time in the craft room this last week and below are some of the results. The card is alcohol inks with an Artchix collage image. Made for my friend Lisa who turned 40 on Thursday. I also made a journal for her using a background technique in the current issue ClothPaperScissors (July/Aug) by Pam Carriker. Had lots of fun doing it to. I'm inspired and I plan to do a few more using this technique using different colour ways.

I also popped over to Linda B's blog and Linda has a great technique video on Youtube and funnily enough I've got all the materials required!! LOL. So some time in the near future, I'll be trying out this technique as well.

Hope you all have an inky weekend, thanks for coming to visit. Cheers!

Just beautiful Gen, I have that stamp you use in the background, and it has never looked as good as you have it here. I am sure your friend was thrilled. I hope the toe is better.
