Elegant Pink and Gold Marbled Alcohol Ink Birthday Card

Thank you so much for joining me for this stunning Alcohol Ink Birthday Card, Let's jump right into the making of this card!!

I have a piece of Tim Holtz 5x7 inch Yupo paper and three colours of Alcohol Ink Raspberry, Enchanted and Gilded, I also have some blending solution and 90% Alcohol. I work between those three inks, blending solution and 90% alcohol until I have a design I like, this takes a bit of work but I think it turned out stunning, also I like to work on across my panel starting in the top left corner and working to the right bottom corner.

While my panel is drying I brought in some Gold Deco Foil and just pounced it into the drying ink, which adds some foil into the sticky areas, this takes a bit of trial and error to find the right tackiness but looks stunning on the finished card. Once my panel was dry I trimmed off about 1/8th of an inch on all sides and brought in a piece of Gold Foil paper to back the panel and a card base made from Simon Says Stamp Cotton Candy card stock. I also stamped out a sentiment in Delicata Golden Glitz ink on the same Cotton candy cardstock and also added a gold foil border to the sentiment as well and adhered it on top of the alcohol ink panel.

If you would like a more in-depth look at how I made this card please check out the video linked down below, I also have a full supplies list below the video as well if you would like to know exactly what I used. Thank you so much for stopping by and I cannot wait till I see you again.
