I Need Alcohol!!!

Yah, I said it... I need alcohol!!!  OF COURSE after last weekend's "Margaritaville" Cricut Swarm, we'd follow things up with a little "nip" from our design team.  Danielle a.k.a. FitterTwit here to take you through this week's design team inspirations using that beloved Ranger Alcohol Ink.

First up is Pam with this WONDERFUL frame!!!  With alcohol inks being the PERFECT medium for metal, Pam made this one shine with Ranger Adirondack Alcohol Inks in Pesto, Sail Boat Blue, and gold metallic.  She also used Bazzill Parakeet cardstock with embellishments from Crate Paper and My Mind's Eye.  The ribbon was also from My Mind's Eye and the twine was Jillibean Soup.  This one is ABSOLUTELY gorgeous Pam!!!

Next up is Mindy's FABULOUSNESS!!!  She said that this alcohol inked masterpiece looks like camouflage, but I think it looks more like a fine art print!  What do you think?  This altered book was created using Adirondak Alcohol Ink (of course) in Pesto and Gold. The leather frame accent is from Making Memories and the crown overlay is from Jack and Cat Curio (don't we just love them!!!  Be sure to check out Paper Vineyards class schedule for Jack and Cat Curio's next appearance!!!), and the Studio 112 tag... adhered with a nail head using the purple monster!  We LOVE that HomePro LR.  Swing by the store for a quick demo!!!

And finally we have Marijo's AWESOME card!!!  Isn't it AMAZING what you can do with these inks and how very different they look on all the different surfaces.  Here on Marijo's cardstock, these Adirondack Alcohol Inks in Sail Boat Blue and Citrus look absolutely vibrant and stunning!!!  Marijo told us that she's never used alcohol inks before, and judging by this breathtaking creation, you'd never know it!  It's truly gorgeous!!!!  She also used plenty of Prima flowers spritzed with Glimmer Mist.  Along with Glimmer Mist, be sure to check out the SmoochSpritz and Shimmerz at Paper Vineyard for more shimmery accent options!!!

That about does it for this week.  Hopefully we quenched your thirst! ;)
