Pink Snow
Topic: Backgrounds

Technically, this could come under the heading of 'collage' cards but I really wanted to point out the background technique instead. I made this background with three tones of alcohol ink and silver mixatives. This was near the end, when I had little left on the applicator and the colors were pretty well blended. I used a slide-and-twist motion to clean off the applicator on the glossy cardstock and this was the result. I used a fancy corner punch on the background. 

The center panel is the front off an old Christmas card, cut with a Nestabilities label die. I raised it on foam tape for dimension. I mounted on a folded pink cardstock base with the corners rounded and then added a thick acrylic sticker to more of the pink and trimmed around before adhering to the card.

---------------------------------------------------

I feel free showing all my Christmas cards now because 1) they've been in the mail long enough that most should have been received by now and 2) I haven't had a comment on my blog for so long I don't think anyone is out there anymore. It's not like someone is going to see this and 'spoil the surprise'.

Laughed out loud at your comment about no comments, so even though I just happened upon your blog after googling alcohol inks (I just ordered my first batch) I wanted to comment to let you know people are still viewing your images and being inspired by them!
