Alcohol Ink Twofer

Hi everyone.  Today I'm here with two colourful cards.  These smooshed alcohol ink backgrounds were made a while ago and have been in my stash.  They made quick cards by adding a beautiful flower background die-cut over top (I had to buy this gorgeous die-cut because of my friend Marcia ... she is really good at enabling me to buy more things!). :)

I glued down the white die-cut card fronts over top of the alcohol ink panels and then popped them up on foam over the card base.  I added a white heat embossed black sentiment banner for each card to finish.

Here's a close-up of the cards.  This first one was sent to my dear friend Mary for her birthday last month.

... and, my favourite colours ...







Stamps:  Everyday sentiments (AliExpress)
Paper:  Yupo; White (Neenah 110 lb. card stock); Black card stock (SU!)
Ink:  Alcohol inks:  Ranger and Pinata
Accessories & Tools:  Blending solution, Flower Burst Tria Background die (Gina Marie Designs), white embossing powder, heat tool
