Wish Big

Hi bloggers!  Here's another really quick and easy card.  I started with a piece of
Silver Sparkle Alcohol ink card from Ranger.  I used a bunch of alcohol inks all over it randomly.  Using the Double Stitched Rectangles, I added a multi-layered frame over it with a wider white base and a thin black frame on top.  I added it with mounting foam over the bright coloured background.  I cut the Wish Big sentiment in black and added it to a white shadow backing die cut, then added it to the centre of the frame.  I cut two heart balloons from the Birthday Balloons die set.   I added two black strings from the Dotty Balloon die set.  I added the balloons with mounting foam in the corner of the frame.  The card was completed with white and black mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7"  x  8 1/2"  in size.  All for now Sue x

Hi Sue, Wow 'All things bright and beautiful' comes to mind on seeing today's card and like Pauline I can remember a dress in a similar colourway/pattern - the '70's have a lot to answer for :-).

Hi Sue
I love what you’ve done with the alcohol inks on the silver sparkle card, very psychedelic indeed. Sorry I missed yesterday but we were travelling to Malta to see my husbands sister, will try to comment as often as I can while we are away
