Alcohol...I mean...Alcohol Inks!!

Yay! My first ever card using alcohol inks. The Fairy on Tiptoe stamp is from the ever so gorgeous Lili of the Valley, coloured with ProMarkers with Sakura glitter pen highlights. She's mounted onto a scalloped circle using my nesties & Cuttlebuglet. The flowers were made by "splodging" (technical term!!) Raspberry, Purple Twilight & Watermelon alcohol inks that I got from Inkylicious onto glossy card and then hiring Oliver (who was paid handsomely with a Nobbly Bobbly ice-lolly!) to sit and punch teeny flowers using a Woodcraft punch. Trust me! Kids will do anything for a Nobbly-Bobbly - Try it!! Entering it at -
