If you own Artist Markers, then you probably already have some Alcohol Ink Refills on hand! 

These backgrounds are so fun to create and just a little addictive too.  I did take it one step further and added a little foiling, and you can see how easy that was to do in the video linked below.

Idea # 1 – Masculine Design – Die-Cutting

How about die cutting a ‘Craft-A-Flower' image? How gorgeous would that be?
