Cards of Support

I was playing with my alcohol inks again a couple of days ago and wanted to use those backgrounds for a few cards of support. Many have already been mailed out but I can always use more, especially during this time of self-distancing and self-isolation. 

I used two old Mojo Monday sketches for the basis of my cards. The colours in the inked background pieces matched pretty well with various papers I have in my stash. I enjoy working with alcohol inks as I never know what to expect with the final results. I used a hair dryer this time to move the inks around. 

The first pair of cards are based on the colours of Bluebird, Lagoon and Raspberry. I didn't have a match for the pink shade in the alcohol inked background but raspberry was a fairly close match. Each section was mounted on a piece of cardstock and the sentiments were stamped using Bluebird ink. A few silver embellishments were added along with a coloured flower. 

The second pair of cards are matched with some dark turquoise foil paper, glitter cardstock, some old purple patterned paper and a piece of lighter turquoise cardstock. I embossed the sentiments using silver embossing powder - under the normal light, it doesn't show in the photos which is why I am including photos of just the sentiment parts.
