Father's Day

Hello all!
I know this is really late for Father's Day,
but I wanted to share this card I made for my husband.
It, obviously, could be used for any occasion,
with just a different sentiment.
Recently I have been spending a lot of my 
crafty time making backgrounds for my stash.
One of the techniques I've been doing a lot is
using alcohol inks, dropping them onto different
papers and seeing what I get.

make different patterns.
For this one, I dropped ink onto a piece of vellum.
I used blending solution to help the inks flow and mix.

The foil adhered to the tacky ink creating 
shiny blue areas on the background piece.
I wrapped the vellum background around a
piece of white card stock to make it more sturdy
then adhered it to a white card base.
The sentiment was stamped with 
Here you can see where the blue foil has adhered to the 
ink, giving a metallic shine.
I've been having so much fun creating backgrounds 
for my stash, I've built up quite a collection.
Now I just have to get to work making cards and
other projects with them.
