Hello everyone..

Finally made my back to my blog, gosh I have been so busy and so tired but things are quieter now so I can enjoy my blogging again a bit more often..

SO...what have I got to share today..Alcohol inking and a bird,with a bit of accetate too.. sounds like a plan..

Aww..there he is, my pigeon...Stanley the seagulls cousin..Paul...Paul the pigeon..

I was playing around with alcohol inks again and adding gold foil and sometimes gold ink..

Then I cut out a branch and added the rest as a circle in the background...BUT!!...

Behind accetate...inside the card..
This was so much fun.

Silly sun came through the window at the wrong time, but at least you can tell I had a nice day going on..

I only made one of these cards and  I'm not sure why, if things go well I do them in groups..never mind..oh, I remember, I only had one sheet of inking done..

So there we go, thank you so much for stopping by and I'll see you in a couple of days..

Chrissy, Paul and his "Branch" his gorgeous. LOVE what you do with the alcohol inks. You play so well I think we are going to see lots of amazing things when you retire. You will have to go back to work to afford all your crafting supplies, lol.

Simply glorious... I love your mixed media adventures. The alcohol ink masterboard is scrumptious, and I love the framed circle card. So pretty with the branch and Paul perched there. If we call him a dove rather than a pigeon then you've got a great Christmas card design ready to go too.
