Trendy Butterfly

This is what happens when you clean your craft room.  I have a container of alcohol inks that have sat on the shelf for...lets just say years.  I have watched videos on alcohol inks and they  just sat in the container.  I considered the inks my retirement stuff!! 

Today is use  the alcohol inks day.  I used photo paper and dropped blobs of ink.  I put the blender on top and moved the paper to let it do it's thing.  I love the design it created.  Then I stamped with a black ink pad the music and script images.  It was bold and beautiful. 

To put the card together, a piece of corrugated paper, twine and a key  was added.  A butterfly and sentiment was added.  This may be a freestyle collage.

I had so much fun playing with the alcohol inks and spent the day using different colors and paper.  I will be posting the finished cards in the future.

Have a great day and use the supplies that you have had sitting around!!

Stamps used:
