Getin' Inky!

Indeed I did! I've been playing with Ranger Distress Inks & Alcohol Inks lately, thanks to a good friend! And if you have ever played with them you will know what I'm talking about!!!
---
I started with plain, ivory paper, a couple distress ink pads and some cut & dry foam. I smeared/rubbed/sponged the ink onto the paper and kept playing with the color until I achieved what I was looking for.
---
Then I stamped the TK image in archival ink overtop. Roughed up the edges, used my glitter pen to bring our the sparkled of the snow, tied on the ribbon and then sat there and didn't really like it. :(
---
That friend that got me excited about all this ink saw it sort of tossed aside and liked it. So, I'm posting this for her! Maybe someone else will get inspired out there and improve my attempt!!!
---
Enjoy your day everyone!

I haven't tried alcohol inks but it sounds messy. Your card turned out gorgeous!

What don't you like? I love it! I think the glitter you added was the way to go, and it just brings the whole image to life! Look at that snowman! This is lovely! I haven't played with alcohol inks, but I want to!!

You need to bring over your "paint" sometime and teach me a few tricks of the trade! Lovely card BTW.

Theresa, I can't believe you don't like this, it is absolutely stunning! The background colours are amazing, beautiful tones and that image is beautiful. I think sometimes you have looked at your own card for so long you get fed up with what it looks like, look at it again in a couple of days and I am sure you will view it differently!

This is gorgeous, you sure achieved a great effect. I will have to pull out my alcohol inks again and start playing.
