Alcohol inks and acetate.


Hi everyone, I was excited to be asked to be a guest designer on CAS Mixup Card Challenge after winning the January challenge. It's also the challenge's 2nd birthday, the time seems to have flown by!


I love CAS cards but also enjoy dabbling in mixed media and messy techniques, so this challenge is the perfect combination!


The theme is acetate, not something I've ever really used before! So I thought I'd have a play with some alcohol inks and see what happened. The acetate looked pretty ordinary until I turned it over, the side without the inks looks so much shinier and colourful. My elements are acetate, stamping, alcohol inks and diecutting.

I'm linking up to the anything goes challenge at Addicted to Stamps & More,


and it's also anything goes at Word Art Wednesday

Grab our badge:

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge has an anything goes theme too and they are featuring Memory Box goodies.

  17. Congratulations on your win, and your GD spot at this fun challenge. Love this wonderful sunburst circle die, and it certainly shows off the sparkle of color on your alcohol acetate. I've never done anything (that looked good!) with acetate. You've scored big on your first try! TFS & Hugs
