Free on Friday plus playing with ink and paint.

 I have spent several days trying to get something specific from alcohol inks.  I used glossy photo card and last year I got some good results, but this year I threw quite a few away before I checked on my information on my last play!  I was using the wrong side!  I should have been using the back of the cards - oh well.  Things got better after that, but I find alcohol inks so unpredictable.  I am guessing that practise makes perfect, but I think I will use non photo card next time.

I also had a play at making backgrounds with acrylic paints with my index cards.  These are just a few of them.  I did these by spreading paint on a card and then lifting it off with the index cards.

Today I have another flower card for you, there is one more to come in this set.  Would you like birds next or butterflies?  Or perhaps more flowers?

Wishing you a great weekend, see you soon x
