Storage for alcohol inks ;0)


Hello, I hope to find you well (if not dry) the wet weather here is so bad, so if you don't really have to go out stay in and craft as well as keeping nice & warm ;0) This is a lovely size box and I have been looking for some more storage so I spent the evening last night playing with foil, alcohol inks and paper amongst other things and this is what I turned this little box into.


Some sticky foil and some alcohol inks made the bottom part of the box, then I put some of my Alcohol Inks (AI) all over the side. I really love playing with AI on all sorts of materials like glossy card stock, card board, frames and it's super fun to use on metal of all types. I keep my earth tones and metallic's in this one.  This will make for much easier use when I want to play. All I need to do now is just take this or the other box out of the cupboard. Love it.


And for this part of the box I used scraps of paper. I cut it narrow so the black box would be the boarder and then added a few images here and there (not all are shown) But I love the finished box. I have my lights and brights in this one, I have to say I love the Watermelon colour I think I use this the most, do you have a fave AI colour? let me know. And if you like this post as well as any other of my posts you can now click the +1 at the bottom of each post. Love Dawn xx

Favourite alcohol inks...? Has to be Cranberry... or Wild Plum... or Rust. Most used though, has to be espresso and rust, pitch black and also the gold mixatives.

Gorgeous boxes - fantastic idea :) Now... what can I turf out of a small box that Hubby owns....? Hmmm. *lol*

That's a clever way of storing. I have my bottles in a box as well. But it's ugly. I didn't bother to pretty it up. :) We're having rain here too, today, but it beats the snow that's coming tomorrow. :/
