Alcohol Ink ATC's

I joined a swap for Alcohol Ink's through Rubberstamp Chat again : )
I made a AI background on Yupo Paper, added some die cut evergreens and made ornaments from an Aluminum can. I colored the aluminum shapes, then put them through an embossing folder and sanded the raised portion. I added stickles to the outer edges and on the evergreens, and stamped a sentiment from Amuse (that I won). Here is a link to Stamped Blessings Challenge, where you can use any image- the hostess Chris is an Amuse demo, and the current challenge is Anything Goes.

 Here are the ATC's I recieved in return:
 This ATC is from Diane M., and is watercolored with Alcohol Ink's

 MarionClare made this ATC- the butterflies are created with AI , embossed with an embossing folder and then punched out.

Alsmouse made this ATC- it is an AI background on glossy in blue with a fish stamped and colored. Next, Alcohol Ink was added to acetate which is then embossed with Spellbinders Sea Beauty EF. The seashell is also cut out and adhered to acetate which is also embossed.

Deb Lovett made this fun ATC- Alcohol Ink was applied to a playing card. The image is colored with AI permanent markers and spritzed with Glimmer Mists.

 Renee made this fun ATC using Alcohol Ink for the background, then stamped a festive image and sentiment.

Yankee aka Sheila Rose made this colorful ATC using the Tim Holtz monoprint technique.

 I hope your holiday Preparations are going well and will pray for safe travels for all!

Thanks for stopping by!
