More Alcohol Inks

Happy Thursday! I'm continuing to play with alcohol inks and created a sky & lake background.

Supplies: Paper - Alcohol Ink Yupo; Poptone Black Licorice;
Neenah Classic Crest Solar White
Inks - Ranger Jet Black Archival; Hero Arts Tangerine
Alcohol Inks - Sailboat Blue, Meadow,  Slate & Stream
Stamps - My Monthly Hero June 2018 (birds & chair);
Clearly Besotted A Little Sentimental;
Tim Holtz trees (came in his Alcohol Ink kit)
Dies - WeR Memory Keepers Rectangle Label - retired;
My Favorite Things Blueprints - retired
MMH kit chair die to match stamp

I created a similar card HERE but without alcohol inks - would love to hear which one you like better! The trees I used on that card were a lot taller - I really liked the scale of the smaller trees on this card. Probably should've popped a fish into the "lake" - I sent the card to a fisherman friend who had surgery and has had some challenges recuperating.

Thanks for stopping by!!

This is a very nice card! I like this one a little better because the alcohol inks really make the water and sky more "alive".
