Alcohol inks

Hi there,

This is one of two cards that I am entering into this weeks challenge at Try Stampin' on Tuesday.  Of the two this one is my favourite.  I love the colours of this card, plus it was the second one I made so of course I did things a little differently. 
Here is a close up of the butterfly & panel.  I used Festive Berries, distress inks on the butterfly & then some Ranger Forever Red Perfect Pearls Mist to give it a beautiful shine.  The Stamp on the panel is by Tim Holtz as well.  The nestie I cut the sides down on so the stamped image looks better.
This is the first card I made.  I discovered that a little ink goes a long way.  As I had put on three to four different colours, but the purple seems to have taken over.  I tried lightening it up by putting drops of Blending solution directly onto the panel.  Not sure on that look though.  I also coloured the gems to match using the alcohol ink.  All in all not a bad card.  Thanks for stopping by today

Hugs to you all & have a great weekend xoxoxo
