Ink Its demo reminder tomorrow!

Just a quick reminder for those of you in the Nanaimo area Crafty Capers will be having a Sizzix Ink Its plate demo tomorrow (Saturday July 16) between 10:30 - 12:30. It's free just stop in and see what these great plates are all about! Also, Monday is our 2nd Coffee and a Card session. Between 11:00 am & 1:00 pm stop by and for $2.00 make a fabulous card designed by Kathy and enjoy a cup of coffee too! I've lots of positive feedback from those who attended last Monday. If possible please give the shop a call so we know how much paper etc to cut up but if you forget to preregister that is OK too (preregistering makes our lives a tiny bit easier).
In between demo and class prepping I managed to get a "quick and dirty" card whipped up today. A customer was in today and had heard about a alcohol ink technique where you apply Blending Solution to a stipple brush and create texture in your alcohol inks. I decided to give it a try however found the technique a little less than impressive. I did make a nice alcohol ink background however and managed to finish it up into a card. As most quick and dirty cards are it's pretty straight forward I used Lettuce, Stream and Stonewashed alcohol inks on glossy cardstock. I stamped Hero Arts Small Solid flower all over the background then used a Hero Arts sentiment and matted it as shown.
Thanks for stopping by!

Love this card! I'll have to try this technique to see how it turns out! The colour combo you used is gorgeous!
