Creating With Alcohol Inks

You may have noticed that this week one of our Make N Takes involves Alcohol Inks. I absolutely love using this medium to easily create the most unique and stunning cards. On Thursday, February 23rd, ladies gathered in our classroom for demonstrations on seven different techniques. After each demonstration, they tried it out for themselves and turned them into handmade cards. Here's a look into the class:

What a fun range of colors!
If you'd like to try out alcohol inks for yourself, stop in for this week's Make N Take, or attend a class. The next Creating With Alcohol Inks class will be Tuesday, March 6th at 10 AM. You can register online or by calling (920) 983-0033. 

Hope you've enjoyed this look into one of our classes. Happy Crafting!
