Happy Monday (which seems like a contradiction in terms LOL)   I have a new tutorial on INKY IMPRESSIONS INSPIRATIONS BLOG on how to make a background using alcohol inks.  I hope you will check out the full tutorial over there.

 I put together the rest of my card by affixing the image, base, etc. to my newly created background.   I chose INKY IMPRESSIONS SHOP rubber stamp "LiLi's Birthday Cake" which I colored with Copics, Sakura and Atyou Spica Pens.  I cut her out with Sizzix die, added papers from Gina K. Designs and Papertrey Ink DP, cut out heart die with Sizzix and sentiment from my stash cut with Nestie.   Studio Calico crystals and pleated ribbon from The Ribbon Carousel finish off my card.  Hope you like it!

What a great card here Audrey. I really like the inked background here, it´s a great way to get some more colors into our work and be in charge of which colors are in the lead here too. Great work here again and thanks sooo much for another great tutorial here today.
