Happy New Year


Hello There !

Wishing you all a very happy and creative new year! May each day be filled with joy of crafting and sharing handmade happiness.


Its a new year and i wanted to try something new. Although made a few panels using alcohol inks in Dec last year but i never made a cards out of those.

I used Ranger Adirondack alcohol inks & mixatives. By the way, I made a DIY alcohol blender by mixing surgical spirit with just few drops of glycerin. This seems to be working well for me.

The inks are addictive to play with as the results are very unique each time and the process is super fun.


I also tried something new with the border as well, by adding strips of paper with alcohol inks on top and left side of the card to add more interest. I think the photo did not capture the border properly.

One of my new year resolutions is to take better photos of my work. I really admire many crafters for the way they compose their photos, it really shows their attention to detail and love for their craft. What are your resolutions this year? do share.


Hope you like this CAS new year card, which marks my new beginning with alcohol inks and exploring new card borders.
