How adorable are these narwhals?! They come from the Narwhal friends stamp set from this new collection.

I went with a red, a green and an orange… but really any color would work great on them.

The stunning backgrounds were created by using my alcohol inks on yupo. Check the video on a step by step tutorial!

Blowing the alcohol ink can give amazing results!

    You have inspired me to dig out my alcohol inks and give this technique a try. Adding the isopropyl alcohol first seems to be a winning idea. Thanks to SSS for another great card kit!
