Hi there Crafty friends, it’s Lisa here today to show you a card I created for The Crafty Pickle.
For this card I used the Close To My Heart Thriller set. To obtain the “grunge” look for the background, I used Ranger’s Alcohol Ink and the Alcohol Blending solution. I mixed these together on a blending sponge and made quick dabs all over the cardstock. Once the cardstock was covered in color, I added the blending solution to the sponge and made quick dabs all over the cardstock. This blended all of the ink and made the colors look more cohesive. Once I achieved the look I was aiming for, I then sprayed the cardstock with the Black Soot Distress Spray to darken up the background a bit.
I stamped the sentiment “scary Halloween to you” on cardstock that I distressed with the Frayed Burlap Distress Ink. To finish the card up, I added a few sequins to the sentiment and the background from the Crafty Pickle Relish Mix.
I hope you enjoyed looking at my card, as soon as the Crafty Pickle shop reopens, be sure to take a peek at all the awesome Relish Mixes and Flairs to add fun to your projects.

How eerily lovely! 🙂 I’ve not yet tried Alcohol Ink, but it looks like such fun!
Thank you Carolyn! Alcohol ink is so much fun & you can just keep adding layers & layers of color. Give it a try!!
