Blue, Purple And Silver Pearl Alcohol Ink 5 x 7 card

Hello everyone and thank you so much for stopping by, I had soooo much fun playing with these super vibrant alcohol inks and cannot wait to share it with you, so let's jump right in.

I started out by creating my card base and matte, I wanted to make a 5 x 7 card so I wouldn't have to trim off too much of the Alcohol ink panel. I cut my base to be 10 x 7 and scored at 5 inches and cut my base to be 1/4 of an inch smaller, my matte is some beautiful Silver cardstock. Then I got to creating my Alcohol inked background I used Opulent and Divine starting each at a corner and working them towards one another with blending solution. Alcohol inks do take a bit of patience but they can be really fun to play with.

Once I was happy with the panel I trimmed it down to be 1/4 of an inch smaller than the silver matte and set it aside to work on a focal to add to my card. I brought out 3 of the Leaf fragments dies and cut two of out of a heavy weight vellum and one out of the centre of my silver panel. I adhered the layers then added the leaves onto my inked panel with some liquid glue. Vellum will show the glue through it so I added some sliver gems on top for added shine and to hide the glue. I then foiled a sentiment strip with some silver foil to match and called this card done.

Thank you so much for stopping by for this quick look at my Alcohol ink 5x7 card using two of the stunning new Alcohol ink pearls.
