Nikki's playing with FX...

God morning everyone and welcome to our last post for February!

Nikki is here with us today sharig a fab' make combining contemporary and vintage styles to great effect. Nikki is also playing to find her own techniques...


I created the background of this card using alcohol drops onto wet paint - a fun technique where you are never quite sure how it is going to come out. There are more details on my blog today explaining the process if you would like to have a play!



A fab' make Nikki and a great example of experimenting to achieve your own personal FX - thank you!

We hope you're all having fun out there with your crafts and perhaps you'll have the time to make or finish one in time to enter....?  This challenge closes at 5 minutes to midnight (London time) tomorrow night.  Of course, we'll be back with another brand new challenge on Sunday so make a date!

Have a fun weekend and take care,

Chris and the team xxx

Hi, Nikki! I love this alcohol and paint technique, and one I've been wanting to try. My hairdresser (a guy) does this type of artwork on a BIG scale. You can achieve the most wonderful results as you have with this background. Grat card with an awesome color combination!
