More alcohol inking



After discovering my love of alcohol inks not so long ago, I have found myself using them quite a lot. I spent one afternoon just playing with a pack of glossy postcards and my inks, just seeing what effects I could come up with. The background I have used on this card I really liked and had to make something with it straight away. A friend of mine had a birthday coming up and so it was with her in mind I made this card. The flowers are punched from the scrapes of the background piece, never waste a thing me, lol. I used glossy accents from Ranger and micro beads that I got from the Fruit Pixie, a fantastic site for all those little bits we find ourselves wanting.
EDITED for Mamaluke the accent beads are stuck on with the Glossy accents as well as having a coat of it over the top of them, I have found this the best ashesive for beads.
