Shimmering Blue Bird Salutations

Happy Saturday!

I hope you're all doing well and surviving the cold (or heat) depending on where you are located...  Today I wanted to share a fun CAS card I made using some new goodies....Kristie Taylors Sparkle Spirits...shimmering alcohol inks!

You all know how much I like shimmer and sparkle - well these inks have it...unfortunately it's so difficult to capture in photos.  It really is lovely.  I used a few different techniques for applying the ink to the glossy cards. Initially I just shook some on and let it dry.  Next layer I sprinkled the ink on and used a straw to blow it giving a splatter effect.  Finally I added a few more drops and pounced it here and there.  It is just so much fun to play with.

I then stamped the soaring bird and sentiment using Imagine's new StazOn Pigment ink.  I LOVE this ink!! It is so opaque, it covers amazingly well and dries almost instantly.  Wicked cool stuff...can't wait to share more about this ink.

And there you have new products to get your mojo in go gear.

  1. Such a fun and artsy alcohol ink background left mostly uncovered. Your stamped bird and small sentiments are the perfect embellishments. Need to check out the shimmery alcohol ink.
