I did a "learn at lunch" at my LSS and they taught a couple of different ways to use the Tim Holtz alcohol inks to make interesting background for cards or layouts. This was my favorite because no two ever look the same. You just dot some ink on a felt pad and "pounce" away at the glossy cardstock until you get the coverage that you want. Pretty cool, huh?
The stamp set is from Stampin Up! and the inks used for the flowers are Close to My Heart. The birthday sentiment is from Papertrey Ink. Thanks for looking!
