Beverly G: Mardi Gras
Glossy Card stock, and Alcohol Inks are the beginnings of this card. I used Raisin, Bottle, and Gold alcohol ink. Even though I used the same colors the 2 backgrounds I created look very different. The one I stamped the couple on is more ethereal like. I went around the edge of the first background with a gold Sharpie Paint pen and attached it to the card front. I stamped the couple, cut them out with an oval coluzzle shape cutter and went around the edge with a purple metallic marker. I attached the gold braid to the back of the oval with Scor-Tape and then attached to the card front with dimensionals. I created the Mardi Gras label stack with a McGil Vintage Label punch, and 2 Stampin' Up punches using some metallic paper I had in my stash. I colored the moon with a Clear Star gel pen, her heart necklace with a purple Spica Glitter pen, and added the tiny gold flat beads for just the right finishing touch.
I'm thinking this might make a good party invitation.
