Creative Use of an Alcohol-inked Background

Hello friends!

I am popping in to share some a very colorful alcohol-inked card. 
This Penny Black Elegant Edge seems to be perfect for that.
I had a lot of fun adding assorted Alcohol Ink Pearls. However, I am not gonna lie...
Sometimes the inky result looks so bad that I want to too the Yupo paper out!

As you know already, Alcohol Ink has a mind of its own and can be unpredictable.
I did spent about 7-8 minutes on this piece of  card stock until I was happy with it.

 Those splotches are perfectly imperfect.
 I then decided to created with this ornate Penny Black Elegant Edge Die .
All I needed to do is die cut it in two pieces.

Ding---> During the alcohol inky process, I had some unwanted BROWN spots.
I took out a cotton swab and quickly dabbed it with Alcohol Blending Solution
I was able to remove the unsightly brown spots.

The white-embossed sentiment "with love" is from "Golden Dance" stamp set.

Alcohol Inks are messy and are not for everyone....but once you can see the end result.
You would want to do it all over again, again....and again.
I hope that you like what I share today!

Actually think the alcohol ink background is that vibrant color. That said. the intricacy of the diecut looks fabulous against it. Nice upgrade for your card.
