Thank you card ~ alcohol ink background

Hello.  Today, I am sharing a card made at a recent card class.  This involves an alcohol ink technique for the background layer.

Sentiment:  Thank you.  Thank you for simply being there.

For this card, I used paper for use with alcohol ink.  I first stamped and heat embossed a floral stamp, with white embossing powder.  It doesn't show up with these light alcohol ink colors, but it does have the texture and shine in person.  If I were to do this again, I would use back embossing powder for the flower.  I also added multiple drops of alcohol ink in different colors plus air blown from a straw.  The background was left to dry before trimming.  Once dry, I added the sentiment panels on top, to finish.

The look is never the same twice.  It was my first attempt with liquid alcohol inks.  Since this was a class project, I do not have the brand of ink that I used.  There are great ones on the market which produce similar effects.

This project does not include a video tutorial.
