It's a Celebration

Happy Saturday!
Glad to have a long weekend here and some time to play.

This is a simple card I made using Yupo paper and some Ranger Alcohol inks.
I have such fun when I play with those inks and when you add some Blending Solution or Rubbing Alcohol, the colours move and create such interest as they blend.

So, I grabbed a piece of Yupo and cut it down and dropped different colours of Alcohol inks over the paper.  I used a straw to blow a bit and splattered on some Blending Solution.  It dries quickly, so you do have to work sort of fast.
I set that aside to dry and got out my Cuttlebug to do some die-cutting.
The flower die is very pretty and I thought it would work well over the inked background.  I don't know who makes it as I just bought it at a garage sale and it was just packaged in a bag.  If I find out, I will come back and add it in.
I die-cut the 'Celebrate' from MFT 3 times and glued them together for stability.
When I placed the sentiment against the background, it looked a bit lost so I decided to back it with some Vellum.  I laid down the die on the Vellum, traced around the outside edge and then fussy cut it out.  I then glued the word right over the vellum and it was such a great improvement as you could see it better.
I glued the flowers over the AI background, then the sentiment and mounted it all onto a plain white card base.

Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.

So bright and pretty Karen and love the AI colours with the white die cut flowers and the large die cut sentiment backed with the vellum does make it stand out beautifully. x

A wonderful vibrant background with a stunning pair of die cuts over it. Love how you have used the vellum to accent the celebrate.

Fabulous vibrant colours from the alcohol inks and the very pretty die cut looks stunning. Great idea to back the die cut sentiment with the vellum. A very eye catching and stunning card and glad you found some time to play x
