Alcohol Ink Butterfly Card
Well, I spent the afternoon playing with alcohol, and no, not the drinking kind! I mixed up a new batch of 'sky blue' alcohol ink and think I finally have the recipe down pat! I posted a card similar to this one last month but I have made a few changes. The background is liquid alcohol ink, applied with a felt pad and using the blending tool in a pouncing motion. I painted the butterfly by using Distress inks on a glass plate and mixing them with water, then applied a few spritzes (is that a word?) of Shimmer Mist to the wings.Although the camera really did not pick up any of the shininess or sparkle, it does make the butterfly look as if it could fly right of the card! I added a very small sentiment, but I really like the card plain, it looks like a photograph! Have a great day!
