More bright, fun, and artistic card for my Inspiration Station Memory-Dex (coming soon!).  This time, it's the awesome Regular Acrylic Divider 3pk!  These come with a protective layer on both sides.  If you peel off one side at a time, you can keep the other clean and pristine til you're ready to use!  There are three different techniques used with the alcohol inks.Clear_Scraps_Memory-Dex Acrylic Cards_Inspiration Station card 1(1)This first card was created using blue and green alcohol inks first applied to a felt square and brushed horizontally across the card.  Then I used the bottles and just randomly dripped ink until I liked the look.  These are really forgiving which makes it great to get creative with!  A little scrap strip of paper on both sides and a few sticker complete the card.  The only "trick" with acrylic is to make the back side of the card the same.

To complete the third card, I grabbed the Clear Scraps 6" Stripes Stencil.  This is a great starter stencil because you can do so much with it!

The alcohol inks were applied with the felt pad through the stencil.  The random drips of green alcohol ink.  Love the way they run down the stripes too!
