Sue's playing with alcohol and foil!

Today we are delighted to feature another of our newest DTMs, Sue B. She is delighting us with alcohol, foil and texture...

I enjoy working with Alcohol Inks especially dripping the colours onto foil, and I think the effect is perfect for a Masculine card.  I embossed the foil with a texture fade and lightly sanded to highlight the design, then adding the metal elements to complete the effect.

Gorgeous colours, a fabulous look and loving that depth of texture Sue - thank you! Do hop across to see more details on Sue's own blog.

Astrid will be here on Monday so please don't miss her next project, you certainly won't be disappointed!

Have a great weekend everyone,

  8. What is proper protocol for complimenting a masculine card? Cute? Ehhh. Testosteroney? Probaby not. Fabulous? Perhaps that's acceptable. Well, whatever words are agreeable, insert them (here)!!
