Birthday card with alcohol ink background

Hello! Are you having a restful weekend so far?

I was playing with alcohol inks again and this time I tried to make a partial background with them to make a one layer card.
I wanted to know if masking fluid works with alcohol inks on a glossy paper.
So I drew two lines using masking fluid, waited until it dried and applied alcohol inks. As I drew the lines by hand, the border isn't clean but it worked very well.  I used Sail boat blue, Indigo and Hazelnut to follow the color scheme from May Inspiration Challenge at Altenew blog.


After the background was completely dry, I rubbed the masking fluid off and stamped the flowers from Best Mom stamp set by Altenew using embossing ink and gold heat embossed it.  I then colored the flowers using yellow acrylic paint in several layers to make them opaque.
The sentiment is from Hero Arts. I stamped it with Staz On black ink.

Gorgeous alcohol ink background TaeEun. TFS your tip on using masking fluid. Worked great. Love the free flowing results. Love how you were able to stamp, heat emboss and color your pretty flowers directly onto your background. I learned so much about alcohol inks. TFS your detailed description and joining our CAS Mix Up Challenge.

Very beautiful card. I think drawing the lines of masking fluid by hand was genius... really wonderful effect.
