Diamond Dew Drops (AKA- My new best friend)

I knew I wanted to do a project using lots and lots of Dew Drops. Usually, I use them as random accents or for the center of flowers. I want the Dew Drops to be the main attraction and star of the show. I noticed that I had been solely focused on the round Dew Drops and hadn't given the Diamond Dew Drop its fair appearance in my projects. When I realized how many colors they come in, I knew I had to make a rainbow of beautiful Diamond Dew Drops.

Here is a little peek...

Joggles Wonky House Rubber Stamps

Today, I have a card project created completely with Alcohol Inks over on the Joggles Blog.  I love the vibrant colors that they produce and the interesting patterns you can create as they dry.

Here is a sneak peek...

I made three different cards to show the scope of possibility using the same stamps & techniques but varying the color scheme. I hope you will see the versatility of the stamp designs and agree that the same image can suit multiple occasions. By simply changing color palette from bright to pastel shades, you can create for a wide range of occasions.

2 more cards...

Alcohol Inks are known for their beautiful intense color but are equally effective when used in pastel shades. Spend some time exploring Alcohol Inks and just have a play, you may be pleasantly surprised at what you can create.
