Beach Deco Alcohol Inks

Welcome back to Alcohol-Inks-Anonymous but more importantly the arrival, chez moi, of Ranger's latest, scrummiest, oh-so-fabulous alcohol inks.
There are 6 more to add to your essential collection and they can be bought seperately or slightly cheaper, in 2 sets of 3, called Beach Deco and Spring Break.

This is the Beach Deco kit which contains Flamingo, Patina & Amethyst.
I LOVE! LOVE! LOVE these colours and if you look here at Lord Holtz teasing video, you will see how perfectly the colours fit into the rest of the range available.
Honestly, if you've not given the ol' alcohol inks a go yet then why not give 'em a go now. Don't be afraid to experiment, these little bottles will last yonks. A teeny, tiny drop goes a long way and you can create some spectacular patterns. Click on the 'Alcohol Inks' label in the side bar & it should take you to earlier posts with some ideas on how to use them.

For my card today I dripped a drop or 2 of 1 colour on Yupo and puffed it about with my Tim Holtz air spritzer. I then repeated the process with the next colour. If you add the second colour while the first is still 'wet' you can get some beautiful, swirling effects as the colours meet. I used my alcohol ink pen, filled with blending solution, to add those dots. You can also use an old fine paint brush, toothpick or similar to pick up a minuscule amount of blending solution to create the same look.
To finish I added some Nuvo Crystal Drops in Carnation Pink and White Blizzard just for a spot of texture.
No sentiment, I'll leave that until another day.
