Alcohol Leaves

Hi!  While I was making some DT cards yesterday, I also took the time to make this card for a few current challenges.  This uses the sketch at MFT Stamps, the celebration with sequins challenges at CAS on Friday, the monochromatic green challenge at Card Concept and the Green challenge at Work It Wednesday.

I started by creating the alcohol ink panel on Yupo paper.  Various greens and blue inks were used as well as silver mixative.  Once I was happy with the result, I stamped on the panel with archival ink and the leaves from Geometric Greenery, then wiped off the ink to create a resist look.  The panel was die-cut with a die from Blueprints 30, which I extended with some partial die-cutting.

The circles were die-cut with Tropical Teal ink and positioned onto a white card base to match the sketch.  I then added the Yupo panel and the black die-cut sentiment.  Finally, some crystal clear confetti and this clean and layered card was done.  In the photo aboe, you can see hints of the silver mixative.

Thanks for visiting!
