Today at Practical Scrappers is the "Challenge Me Tuesday" feature and this weeks challenge was wood grain paper. This was one type of paper I did not own (can you believe it). So, me being the practical lady I am, I made my own using Ranger alcohol inks and some glossy cardstock. I used the earth tone colors carmel and ginger as well as my blending tool and solution. It's not my best card but I've been playing around with my alcohol inks on the side and this is the first project I am willinto put on my blog...hehe! I also used the alcohol ink (ginger) to change my white vinyl thickers to brown with some texture. The image I stamped is actually a cuttlebug embossing folder that I inked up and stamped with. What can I say, I was having all kinds of fun experimenting.
