Happy Birthday Using Alcohol Inks

Hi guys!! I hope everyone had a great Easter. I know I sure did.  We had a great sermon at church and then an awesome turnout at my church’s Easter dinner that my Mom coordinates each year.  It’s so cool to see so many people come together to help serve our community a delicious dinner.  There’s folks from all walks of life there.  It’s basically for anyone who wants a delicious, home cooked meal.  For those that are homebound, we have people that even deliver!!  It’s a really great experience.

Anyway, on to my card.  I’m here to share a Birthday card with you for this week’s theme at Always Fun Challenges.  This was my first experiment with alcohol inks.  It was interesting, that’s for sure.  I actually ended up using a background that my kid made.  It seems like I overworked the ones that I did.  His outcome was what I was hoping to achieve.  Maybe next time…

If you’d like to see the Easter card that I created last week, click here.


This card was just way too easy.  All I did was cut the Big Birthday die from MFT out of my background and voila!  It doesn’t get much easier than that!!


I just love the colors of this background!!  I have another card to share with you guys on Wednesday which will be my very first project for Drive By Crafts as a design team member so stay tuned for that one.

  1. That’s kids for you. They seem to have a looseness that makes things look easy. It looks fantastic, Misty. Those bold cut outs were all it needed to make a stunning card.


  2. I love it!! I was just looking into getting some alcohol inks. What colors did you use? He did a lovely job!
