Today there was a tutorial using alcohol inks to create cards. Since I have previously used alcohol inks for cardmaking, I dug out my supplies and created a simple card.

Supplies used: Adirondack Alcohol Inks (stream, pearl, blending solution); Versamark Ink; stamp - Stampabilities; border die - PTI Eyelet Lace Border

Here is the Spicy Grilled Shrimp Skewer recipe that I showed yesterday:

Spicy Grilled Shrimp Skewers

1 ½ lbs. extra-large shrimp,
peeled and deveined
4 T butter, melted
¼ t cayenne pepper
½ c pepper jelly
1 t grated zest of lime
2 T lime juice

Pat shrimp dry with paper towels. Thread shrimp on skewers and brush with 1 T butter. Season with cayenne and salt.

Heat jelly in saucepan over medium heat until bubbling. Off heat, whisk in remaining butter, lime zest and lime juice. Cover and keep warm.

Grill shrimp over hot fire 2 – 3 minutes per side. Brush with glaze. Serve.

**Since it is just the two of us now, I only used a dozen shrimp, but used the full amounts for the glaze. This left enough glaze for another dozen, so the balance was placed in a seal-tight container and stored in the refrigerator for the following weekend.


  1. Your card turned out really well! Alcohol inks can be tricky, but you've made it look pretty easy.

    Shrimp - YUMMY!

  2. Your card is so pretty, love those colours you used.
