Foil and Alcohol Inks Challenge.

Hello Everyone.
Welcome to  Our Creative Corner.
Susan here again to inspire you for another week, with some dazzling creativity not just from me but from my teamies as well.
Before I get into the business of explaining the Challenge for this week, I have a little gripe! And I can honestly say I do not gripe often, but today I am going to have a gripe!

So please read the post!

 Total number of Challenges you are allowed to enter is:
 FOUR, including ours!
Last week we had some amazing entries and I was impressed at the talent and quality of work that was on display, it was exciting for me to see such wonderful backgrounds, and very inspiring, and there were many winners, but every-time I thought 'this is the one' I had to disqualify because the entrant had participated in too many Challenges!!!
It was so disappointing.
 It is a rule that we have made of late and it has to be adhered to ..........  Please follow this rule we have set, enter your amazing projects and have the chance to be our next Top Talent, where your Blog and creations will be spotlighted.

Now back to the good stuff.

Here is the next challenge: 
Foil and Alcohol Inks!
The technique of dripping Alcohol Inks onto Foil has an amazing effect. 
The item you make can be anything; a free standing decoration,  or an element to place onto your project, experiment and have some fun, it is getting close to the silly season, so why not let go and free all those inhibitions and let rip with some colour!
Be inspired now by the design team, that I have the privilege to work with.

  1. This sounds like such a fun challenge!! Unfortunately I do not have any alcohol inks. I look forward to seeing what everyone comes up with!!

  2. interesting technique, they look different in a good way.
    sorry you're having trouble with the # of challenges. I don't think I've joined in on yours lately because of that rule, but if I forgot and am guilty, I extend my apologies.

  3. I've entered your challenge for the first time today, having been pointed in your direction by a crafting pal. I'm assuming the challenge closes on November 23rd and NOT the 16th as stated though.
