Cling-wrap birthday cards

Tried something new today!

I wanted to play with cling-wrap (prompted by the current CAS Mix Up) since I don't think I ever have, and I thought (lightbulb) why not try with alcohol ink?!



I think these turned out cool!

Supplies and notes:
  • So, I used different plastic wraps on these, and it made a difference!  I used regular cling-wrap on the first one, and I used the package wrapping from craft supplies (which was not as crunchy as the regular cling-wrap)
  • I used old photo paper-- NOTE: the newer photo paper I used for pictures does NOT work as well as this old stuff-- it must be unstable.  
  • Technique: I dropped ink all over the photo paper and grabbed the balled-up wrap and dabbed it everywhere.  
  • Tim Holtz sentiment stamp inked with Ranger Archival ink in Jet Black.
I'd like to share this at CAS Mix Up, January:


  1. I Love your alcohol ink and cling wrap panels, Mimi. So bright and beautiful and wonderful CAS designs. TFS Hugs..

  2. These did turn out cool, Mimi!! LOVE the mix of beautiful AI colours with the texture from the cling wrap. Thanks for sharing with us at CAS Mix Up!

  3. How cool to pounce the plastic wrap over the wet ink, Mimi! I've got to try that! Thanks so much for sharing this with us at CAS Mix Up!

  4. This seems like a really cool technique to try. I have never used cling wrap either, but I know I have some. Going to check out the challenge. Thanks for sharing something new! Yours looks amazing!

  5. wow, love the bright colours of the AI's :)

  6. Wonderful vibrant colours - they make me happy just looking at them! And a great variation on using cling wrap - must try it with AIs and pouncing the cling wrap! Thanks so much for joining us at CAS Mix Up.
