Full of Roses
by Melissa Rusk


Today I have an inky, fun card to share using the beautiful Rose Bloom Collage die. To start my card I used several colors of alcohol inks and created a fun background on Yupo paper. Then I die cut a piece of white cardstock by positioning the rose die in a few different places on my paper to fill up all of the space.


Then I glued the die cut piece carefully to the alcohol ink background and on to the front of my card. To finish it off I created a glitter black frame and glued it to the card. It was so fun to play with alcohol inks, it is a technique that I am going to have to try again. 

Have a wonderful weekend!





Melissa, this is absolutely gorgeous! I love the depth of color from the alcohol inks and the random pattern but paired with this rose bloom collage die creates a stunning, elegant card and your glittered black frame anchors the whole project! Amazing!

What colors of alcohol ink did u use on
The bkgd? I like the grays?

Hi Nancy! I used a black and a silver mixative for those two. They are a friends inks so I don't have the exact names.
Both are from Ranger.

Thank you so much!
