Versatile Holiday Card | Alcohol Ink Background


Hi Everyone and Happy Hanukkah to my jewish friends! I was learning/playing with alcohol inks and had quite a few backgrounds I needed to put to work. This one I created by just smushing an felt ink blender loaded with alcohol inks across the paper. I thought it would be the perfect backdrop for snowfall so I used some Avery Elle snowflake dies to cut out some beautiful intricate and glittery flakes. I randomly arranged them on the background and trimmed around the edges.

Now I needed a sentiment, and I wanted a more versatile holiday option so I just used the Concord and 9th sophisticated script set to create my own Happy Holidays sentiment, which I framed out using a rectangle die.

To finish I added some teal/turquoise accents with nuvo drops & ranger perfect pearls, and used a white gel pen to draw some faux stitched around the edge. Mounted it on an a2 base and bam :)
