Last of the UFOs

Finally, my last post with cards I made last weekend, trying to put a dent in my UFO pile. Today I bring you two cards made from experiments with alcohol inks and glossy paper. First one:

I applied alcohol inks to a piece of glossy card stock, pretty much in rainbow order. I added some silver along with the regular alcohol inks, just because I had three bottles of the stuff, and I know I'll never use it all, so why not.

I wasn't sure what to do with the panels I'd made -- they didn't look right all by themselves. Then I got an idea to use one of the SU dies I have for sale ... I think it's called Tulipe ... to cut out a shape from the colored paper. I really liked it!  I used the negative piece to place the die-cut pieces on a piece of card stock and glued them down. I traced around the design with a silver pen.

Here's my other card:

Same idea, but this time I put the negative part over a piece of black card stock.

Both of these landed in my UFO pile because I wasn't sure what else to do with them. Last weekend my friends said to just put them onto a card base and call it "done", so that's what I did. I'm still not feeling the love, but at least they are out of my UFO pile. 

There's no "Stuff I used" section this time, because if I did write down what I used, I've since lost it. But I don't think the list is that important here. You can use any alcohol inks you want to and get a similar effect. If you have any questions, please ask!

Thanks for stopping by!


I'd love to hear what you really think! :-)
