Alcohol Inks Background



This is one of the two cards I made for Sue's Techniques Swap that she is hosting on SCS.  I also made a card for the fancy folds category.  I went to a card class last week at a friends house and Deanne used alcohol inks on a card. I have not done that for a few years and I thought I would use it for the background on this card.  I used a red and blue ink along with a pearl mixative.   I like the look--what do you think?

My second technique card will be posted on the 28th if you want to check back--it also is a design from a card at Deanne's class.....................
I hope Sue and the others swappers like my card!
