A Blast of Alcohol

After giving up on the challenge last week (I just didn't like anything I had created) I was overjoyed to see that this week's CCC from Studio L3 involved my favorite--Alcohol Inks!!!! Literally, this week's challenge is a BLAST! You'll have to get the book and turn to page 52 to find out what that's all about. The jellyfish card uses Wild Plum, Sailboat Blue, Bottle Green and Stream AI's and the sea turtle card uses Bottle, Stream, Meadow, Eggplant and Sailboat Blue AI's. Both use image stamps from Club Scrap's Castaway kit and sayings from By the Seashore Remix. The cardstock is mostly from CS as well, (Stratosphere, Haberdashery, Castaway).

All That Jazz

The new Club Scrap kit (All That Jazz) is out and is it ever GORGEOUS!!! The versatility of the kit is incredible. I have yet to do one that has a music theme. It just goes with everything. This one is of my parents in 1987 on their 25th anniversary cruise.
This one is me, I'm thinking about 1997, just hanging out in my parents' backyard watching Paul and Will play.
And this one is a family pic we took in 2004, all wearing our U2 t-shirts; I tweaked the photo a little with a fresco filter. Isn't this a great kit?

Industrial Grunge Drawer Front

The Compendium of Curiousities Challenge over at StudioL3 this week sent me back into drawer front mode. I love working with grungeboard and this is a great technique. I was going for a tarnished pewter look for my "Hardware" drawer. I used silver mixative and Weathered Wood distress ink. 5 more to go and then it will be finished.
