Merry Christmas with Angela

Hi there, Angela here. As you can see I have got the alcohol ink bug! Be careful if you start, it is so addictive!  I must of made a dozen backgrounds, I was having so much fun!  I have discovered gold and silver mixatives too and the effect is just beautiful!  I thought today's card was very Christmassy so I went with it being Christmas and all lol.
A couple of tips,  when using these inks is don't rush it, watch the colours dry a little so it doesn't get too 'muddy' USE Gloves, (my fingers are stained!!!) and don't think what you create is unusable, there are so many different ways to use these backgrounds!

Anyway head on over to Scrapbook Boutique and checkout all the details on this card along with products used to purchase.

* Place Yopo paper on your craft mat
* Randomly drop Adirondack Terra Cotta on paper
*Randomly drop Adirondack Sunshine Yellow on paper
* Drop Adirondack Blending solution over the colours and watch colours spread.
* Randomly drop Adirondack Lettuce over paper
* repeat with blending solution
* sprinkle Adirondack mixatives gold over cardstock and they drop blending solution over the gold drops.
* Pick cardstock up and watch colours run and mix together
*Leave to dry or heat set ( I prefer air dry)
* Die cut MFT Merry Christmas Die centre top 
* Using the centre of the die, die cut star in centre and another one in black and inlay
*Trim to 9.5cm x 14cm
* Using foam tape adhere to black card stock
* adhere to white base card
