Celebrate Alcohol Inks with Angela

Hi there, I have another card playing with Adirondack alcohol inks.  Let me tell you, playing with these inks is so much fun and I did have a play a couple of weeks ago and had lots of backgrounds to play with.  Some are just stunning and you don't want to put anything on them to take away from the glorious colours.  Today's card is probably one of my fav backgrounds and my terrible photography hasn't done it justice! The blues are just brilliant and the mixative is truly gorgeous! I have gone fairly simple with the card today and just die cut one of the small mandalas with a simple sentiment.  I haven't photographed too well but IRL I just LOVE it.  

* Using TH Yupo paper drip Adirondack Pool and holding the paper 'Move" the ink around
*Drip Adirondack EGGPLANT and lift paper and move around so colour move into each other
* Drip Adirondack Silver mixative around a few different places on the page but be careful not to use too much as it can overtake the original colours.
* leave to air dry or heat set ( I prefer air dry)
* once dry Die cut small Mandala die in top of card taking care to keep the negative for the centre
* stamp sentiment using Delicta silver shimmer and trim to leave a small white border 
** Die cut card using MFT in and out rectangle STAX and adhere to base card using foam dots
* Adhere sentiment using foam dots just under mandala 
*Using glossy accents adhere mandala to centre of die cut and finish off with enamel dot.
