Time for Alcohol?...


Happy Monday,

I'm back on Hochanda tonight for the Launch of the One Day Special featuring dies by Sue Wilson and range alcohol inks and Cosmic Shimmer Gilding Polish.  It's a bot of a Favourites show as I have put together a selection of items that are either last years Favourites or New favourites!

I thought I would share a coupe of the samples for tonights shows this first picture is made with Yupo Paper and Alcohol inks and it honestly takes no artistic skills.

The next project Is again made using the Yupo Paper and ranger inks I think I had a bit of a poppy thing
when making these projects as this features poppy like flowers as well.


There is also loads of die cutting in the shows tonight and tomorrow at 9am, 12pm, 54pm and Last chance at 7pm) so don't worry Ive not gone all arty!

Enjoy...

  8. Morning John and crafters all,
    Lovely bright and cheerful cards today.
    Never used alcohol inks, so the shows will be recorded so that I can watch at my leisure, then I can fast forward and just watch the demonstrations.
    Love and crafty hugs to all,

  33. Hi John. These cards are really remarkable, can't wait for the shows to see how you achieved these effects, and don't worry, there is nothing wrong with going all arty every once in a while.

  36. I like it when you get "artsy". Your up-coming shows on Hochanda look like they are going to be my kind of show. I have my Yupo Paper and some alcohol inks, but need some guidance. Guess what, you are going to be my guide and teacher. Looking forward to learning new techniques using a new media for me. I am wishing you well.

  37. Eh up John
    In the excitement, I looked earlier but forgot to comment, doh!
    Stunning effects and the first one reminds me of an Andy Warhol print.
    Yupo? Is that on the advert with The Village People? 😆

  40. Really loving the shows John and have spent way too much money (again!). A quick question - can I stamp on top of the gloss/Yupo paper and if so, what kind of ink is best if I don't want to polish it off as I saw you do on the show. many thanks Christine x
