Doodling're probably gonna need your sunglasses for this one. 
This is another technique that I learnt from Joggles.
Honestly this woman has a lot to answer for...I live and breathe alcohol inks these days (quite

On this card I used the 74lb (200gsm) Yupo as I wanted my drops of ink to bloom into circles. If you've been reading earlier posts you'll remember that I've found some colours just don't seem to move on the lighterweight (110gsm) version without blowing them or adding blending solution.

I hope you can make out from the photos the colours I used.  Can you see on the first one how the Lemonade has a pink centre when dry and the Lettuce has an orange outer ring? These inks are so magical....can you understand my fascination?

I then dripped another drop of ink in the centre of each shape to create circles within circles. (Hope that makes sense?)

Once dry, I used Sharpie pens to doodle my 'blooms' into a flowery design.

I could sit here all day....and night, just playing with these inks....I love 'em!!

I have been following your alcohol ink journey and I can totally understand your fascination - the results you have achieved are amazing. Today's card is simply amazing. The impact of your colour choices and the additional doodling is inspiring. I'm now convinced that I need alcohol inks and Yupo paper!
