Howdy crafty folks! How is your summer going? Mine was super busy but now it is nice and quiet. I am ok with that!
I had some fun with alcohol inks on the silver sparkle paper recently and for today’s card I used the silver foil cardstock. These are both made to work with alcohol ink.
For the first step I took the silver foil finish cardstock and dropped 2 different pearl alcohol ink colors on it. I also used a thing that blows air to move the ink around along with adding some drops of alcohol blending solution. I was really happy with the way the paper looked. I cut out the butterfly using the Hero Arts Monarch Butterfly die which is available in the a2z Scrapbooking Etsy store. You could take out all the little pieces and have more of an outline butterfly but I was so happy with all the color I left them all in. I also die cut the sentiment from that same piece of paper.
For the background I used an embossing folder. I decided to use the debossed side of the paper for the background. I added some drops of the pearl alcohol ink onto the background panel. I attached this to the base of the card which is a dark purple and hard to see in the photo.
I then glued the butterfly and sentiment to the card.
