Good morning! Emily Midgett here today with a card a bit outside of my normal style… I recently had the opportunity to play with some alcohol inks and created a fun, kind of abstract background that I wanted to use on a card. What better way to use a pretty background than as a backdrop for some even prettier flowers!
I created the background using pink, purple, orange, and silver alcohol inks by dripping the colors onto some Yupo paper, then blowing them about through a straw until I was satisfied with it. Next, I die cut and stamped several of the flowers from Hero Arts’s Little Florals onto some watercolor paper using some waterproof ink. After I had stamped them, I colored them in a cheerful color scheme using Zig Clean Color Markers.
I die cut a small stitched rectangle and stamped a sentiment from the Acts of Kindness stamp set from Hero Arts using black ink. I mounted it and the floral bouquet using dimensional foam adhesive and added a twine bow
