Alcohol Ink Rockpool

I was tempted to get out my Alcohol Inks and play with them today. I'm not meant to, because even with the sliding doors open and wearing a mask, I still get asthma! It makes me very sad, because this is a medium I really love! So I only managed to make one card, before I felt the effects and here it is.

This is my interpretation of this week's theme at CASology Challenge - I thought of the rock-pools my kids used to love playing in when they were young. 

I used a mixture of Tim Holtz, Pinata  and Paper Mill Alcohol Inks and some of them were shimmer and metallic. 

The frame die is from Kaisercraft and the sentiment is from The Ton Stamps.

I'm sharing at the following:

I'm also sharing a card I made for my daughter to give to her boyfriend, who has just moved to sunny Queensland to start a new job.

This is one of a collection of stamps I just received from an amazing designer Lesia Zgharda.

The sentiment is from Stamplorations.   

I'm sharing at the following:-
