Striking Background with Alcohol Inks

Hello friends!
I am popping in with a quick post on using alcohol ink on vellum. 
 This stamp set Nature's Art from Penny Black seems like the prefect example for this.

This time I made a really colorful backdrop with alcohol inks.

I find myself gravitating the usual alcohol ink color....this one is no exception. I need to use OTHER color more. However, I still like how this turned out.

You may be wondering which side I did first.....

In this card, I made the die cut with Stitched Stackers Frame first and then I did the white-embossing.

Next, I simply inked up the other side with alcohol ink.  Let dry. Done.

That's what today's card is--- artsy, organic and colorful.

I don't seem to be having such great success with these colors, it would be hard to change. This is another gorgeous card by Virginia. Just beautiful.

This is such a beautiful card. I love the colors and feel if you like them, use them! I love greens and pinks and reach for them most of the time. I love how the color spreads out on the vellum. I do use alcohol inks with vellum but have not tried this.
