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!

    These are such sweet little cards Vicky. Love the simplicity of the design, but really appreciate seeing you create the amazing alcohol ink backgrounds. They’re just incredible and all so different. Like you, I often find I’ve bought the same colour twice. I guess it’s because I’m drawn to it. It’s the same with nail polishes and lipsticks🤷🏼‍♀️ Love this release. The hardest think is deciding if there’s anything I don’t want. Enjoy your weekend ❤️
