Thinking of You!

Hello friends!  I have a card to share today using alcohol inks and Yupo paper.  

I started with some Yupo paper.  I combined Patina alcohol ink and Sublime Pearl alcohol ink with alcohol blending solution.  Sometimes I add the color first then drop in the blending solution.  I feel this gives me the most control.  I also use a pipette to pick up and move inks around.  I added some Tranquil Pearl alcohol ink for some added definition.  I usually try to leave some white space around the edges.  Once I had the panel to my liking, I set it aside to dry.    

Once the panel was dried, I die cut it with Waffle Flowers A2 Additional Frames dies.  I used fun foam to pop it up onto a top folding select white card stock base.

  I die cut Simon Says Stamp Outline Cluster Leaves wafer die using some gold glitter card stock.  I used Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive to add it to the card. I left some of the leaves not glue to add to the dimension.

  I stamped and white embossed the sentiment using Simon Says Stamp Beautiful Butterfly stamp set.  I finished the card with a few clear sequins.

I am playing along with Inspirational Challenge and Festive Friday,
