Alcohol Ink ATC's

I joined in a swap hosted by my friend Diane (who does not have a blog...) over at Rubber Stamp Chat.  The trades are always fabulous in these swaps......  Here is what I created:
Technique Junkies technique called Alcohol Ink Splatters (April/May 2013).  I used a die set by Cheery Lynn, and the bat is made with a butterfly punch (cutting off the bottom portion). Sentiment by Sweet Stamps ( HERE ).  I added Gold Stickles to the border of the ATC.

Another Alcohol Ink Splatters using a sentiment by Artistic Outpost (Think and Wonder) and the Silhouette die by Joy Crafts (HERE) .

And, finally- a piece of acetate with AI's and run through the Big Shot, then I added a Cheery Lynn Mini Butterfly (HERE).
 I was having fun, so did not make them all the same..... The bottom of the Yellow is a portion of an oval die frame (HERE).

Here are the ATC's I rec'd back:
Lt-Deb Lovett- Ink applied to a fabric base
Diane M- AI's applied to glossy paper

Lt  Pattidee-Tie Die AI
Rt Sheila Rose-AI on felt pad w/glossy CS

Lt- Jaimie Sander

Lt-Marianclare- AI on vellum then embossed
Rt-Pat Hanberry-AI then Goosebumps. The butterfly is attached to the bead, not the ATC so it is free floating.

There is another AI swap hostess Diane- due Nov 15th - I am going to join in again- want to join us- HERE is the link: AI Swap hostess Mylemontwist

Thanks for stopping by!
