Hey my friends, Happy 2022! My prayer and hope for you is that you will have a great, creative and joyous year!

I’m sharing more alcohol ink pressed cards that I made late last year and posted on social but not on the blog. If you have been following me awhile, you know I absolutely LOVE LOVE playing with alcohol inks and when Jennifer introduced a new technique “Alcohol Ink Press” 3 weeks ago. If you haven’t seen her video, you must see it. Click here to watch it!

I love this technique so much that I ended up making 8 cards! LOL! It’s easy, not as messy and it’s a lot like ink smooshing but you just put the ink colors down with some blending solution and take another sheet (Yupo paper) and press it down to get 2 in 1 backgrounds!

I paired my backgrounds with Hero Arts City Window Fancy die! You’ll see in the photos that I cut part of the die off on 6 of the cards but left it in place on 2 cards. My sentiment is also from Hero Arts stamped with Pinkfresh Studio “Storm” ink. Finally, I added Nuvo’s Mirrorball Stars confetti to finish these off and I love how dramatic these look, I was going for a midnight type of sky!

It’s so cool that we can stretch our supplies! After learning Jennifer’s ink press technique, I may never go back to using the blower! LOL!
