So Very Thankful...

I am really enjoying playing with alcohol inks, although I am just learning and am a beginner at this. The piece used on this card is one that was done using the inks, alcohol and a hairdryer. 

I used a card pattern from Make It From Your Heart Vol. 4 to create my card. I had to do some searching for cardstock that would match the ink design - had some old cardstock in my stash that fit very well. 

I stamped the image using Intense Black ink and then coloured it using a variety of markers. I brushed the flowers with the Clear Shimmer Brush. I intended to cut the sentiment using stitched rectangle dies but it was too large - I took the outline cut and trimmed the pieces in half and then attached them over the white stitched section. That made the sentiment a reasonable size. 

The alcohol inks I used were turquoise, pink and a silver mixative. The purple colour on that piece resulted from the turquoise and pink inks mixing together.

Well, my favorite color combo is the cools, blue-green-purple, so your blues and purples are speaking to me. Love how you colored the leaves turquoise! Such pretty purple blossoms and nicely glittered too. Your AI background is wonderful, xoxo
