Alcohol Inks

Tim Holtz alcohol inks have been introduced to me by Nicci, a friend of mine from WAY back when I had only 1 baby, who happily is into crafting and lives right near me again!
She came round the other night (I am on my own at the moment as Hubby is in Germany teaching) and we played with her alcohol inks, it is something I have never tried. Well, I am hooked!
It is an added bonus that it was Mothers Day in the UK yesterday :D so off we toddled to Scrap Revolution a couple of days ago to see what we could find (it was our first visit to this shop).
Well the wonderful lady had almost everything! She also does crops on a very regular basis so at some point we will be doing one of these!
So quite a few £'s later we left with our goodie bags and brought them home - I resisted so the girls could wrap them up for me for my present tho, aren't I good?! I bought glossy paper, an alcohol ink applicator, some extra felt (must find a cheaper way to get felt!), 4 inks and a pearl ink, glossy accents and a collage stamp (the 3rd one below).
This is a mixture of bits I did the other night with Nicci's bits and what I did yesterday, whilst playing.

I love these collage stamps and the Mona Lisa ('Paris' by Tim Holtz) is one I shall be purchasing for myself asap as I can see it being used very often!
I just need to stop just 'playing' and make them into cards!
You Tube has been a fountain of information videos for me so I am trying lots of techniques.
Happy Crafting Peeps :D
