Alcohol inked backgrounds without the inks?

Hvor ble sommeren av? Dagene går så fort forbi! Er nå iallefall glad for at de ekstremvarme dagene er over ... forhåpentligvis! Kroppen funker rett og slett ikke når det er så varmt, og hodet klarer seg ikke så bra heller, hadde migrene før helga så er noe seint ute med kortene mine... Heldigvis har jeg en god bordvifte og et kjøleteppe som egentlig er et teppe for hunder, men er absolutt en livredder for oss også! 🫠 Det har en gele inni som aktiveres og kjøler ned - og kan brukes igjen og igjen.

Kortene er DT bidrag hos Creative Fingers #260.,
som denne gang er sponset av vår DT Anne Constantly-Carding! Hun selger digitale kits / ark pakker gjennom CraftsUPrint, og gir bort tre flotte digikits som premie. Jeg har brukt et av dem som heter 'Pastel Hues Alcohol Ink Background Set, nydelige ark! Printet ut med helt vanlig skriver blekkpatroner. Som alltid har vi et 'Lag-hva-du-vil' tema, og velkommen skal du være! 💗



Where did the summer go? Days has just blown by so fast! I am happy that the sweltering hot days are over though ... hopefully! I have a hard time coping when temperatures so high, not able to function at all. 🫠 Also made me have a migraine before the weekend so I'm a tad late with my cards... Luckily i got an electric fan and a coolingblanket! Well its actually a coolingblanket for dogs with a gel inside that activates by touch and goes chilly, to be reused again and again, has been a total lifesaver for me!

My cards are DT inspiration for this fortnights challenge #260. at Creative Fingers and showcases beautiful digital papers from the '
Pastel Hues Alcohol Ink Background Set.' Just think of it, beeing able to pretty up your cards with alcohol inked backgrounds, but without the inks! Designed by our sponsor Anne Constantly-Carding, who is selling beautiful digital kits & paperpacks through CraftsUPrint, and three of the kits that the DT's has showcased this time will be the prize! As always it is an 'Anything goes theme', and you are more than welcome to join with your creations 💗
