The Cow Jumped Over the Moon Alcohol Ink Card

Can you believe it's already April?!! Time is flying by, and I realized I haven't shown you my samples for the Ranger Booth from Creativation this year. In the coming weeks, I will post all the samples with a few step outs....better late than never...plus, I really need to get back to blogging regularly again. Today,  I have an all occasion or celebratory card using Tim Holtz Alcohol Ink, which was a favorite of mine. Thanks for stopping by!
I pounced on a combination of blues and purples onto White Yupo Paper, and then die cut it with the starry Thinlets from Tim and Sizzix.
Straight from the bottle, I squeezed drops of pink, orange, yellow, green, and turquoise Alcohol Inks onto more White Yupo, for a tie dyed looked, and then stamped the cow image twice from Tim and Stamper's Anonymous On The Farm set, using Black Soot Archival.
I die cut the moon shape from Translucent Yupo, and then pounced Snow Cap and Silver Mixative, along with Cloudy Blue Alcohol Ink onto the moon. I mounted the starry piece onto white and gold Distress Cardstock, and then adhered the moon. I misted the card lightly with Wendy Vecchi's Pearl Mica Spray from Ranger, for a more celestial feel.
I cut out one complete cow, and then just the legs from the other cow. Then I used brads to join them to the legs of the other cow so I could position them so it would look like he is jumping. I finished with the sentiment mounted to left over tie dyed Yupo.
I'll be back again soon with another Alcohol Ink card. Until then, have an excellent week!


I hope your hands get creatively dirty soon!


  1. This is such a happy, happy card Anita! The moon is amazing, the celestial sky is gorgeous and I just love how you made the cow interactive - great colours on the cow too! xxx

  2. How fun Anita! I love how you made the cow jumping, such a great idea! Especially love seeing seasonal dies used year round-thanks for the reminder on the starry die, I must break mine back out! Thank you for sharing this wonderfully creative card!

  3. Really cute card, Anita!! 💜

  4. So cool! I look forward to seeing more of your creations.

  5. Another amazing creation. I have been Jones to do celestial skies for a while now.

  6. I really likes your blog! You have shared the whole concept really well and very beautifully soulful read!Thanks for sharing.

  7. Fabulously fun Anita!! You even have me saying that nursery rhyme! Terrific colour depth from the alcohol inks. Have a lovely weekend. Nicola x

  8. This is so much fun... I've just got that animal stamp set, but I'm guessing my cows won't be quite as psychedelic as yours! HIs jointed legs are a great touch and the starry sky is beautiful.

  9. This is so whimsical and FUN! I love the "jointed" legs on the cow...such a great addition. That moon is gorgeous! Looks like a slice of the real thing. And your starry background is genius. I really love the whimsical, playful feel of this card, Anita!
