Guest Designing at The Foiled Fox #1

Hello everyone! 

Today I have a special post. The ladies from The Foiled Fox invited me to be a guest on their blog and of course I said yes :)! The Foiled Fox is a one stop shop for crafting, calligraphy and other art projects. I feel so honored to be a guest at The Foiled Fox blog today :)! 

For today's card I played again with my alcohol inks! 

To start off I made a alcohol ink background panel. I sprayed rubbing alcohol on a glossy cardstock first and added the alcohol inks by dripping and blew the colors through a straw. The colors I used are Flamingo, Shell Pink, Limeade, Citrus, Patina, Aqua and Snow Cap. I then gold heat embossed the Full of Glee image on it and colored the flowers using Holbein Artists Gouache. I cut out the bottom part of the panel in an angle. The sentiment is from Extra Special stamp set by Altenew. I stamped it in StazOn black on a strip of glossy cardstock on which I colored with Shell Pink. I adhered it under the bottom edge of the colored panel. I gold heat embossed the Wavy Lines background stamp on my dark gray card base and foam mounted the front panel onto it. To finish off I added some sequins.

That's it for today! Hope you liked my card!  Please don't forget to stop by The Foiled Fox blog for more inspirations!

Thank you so much for visiting my place today!
Have a wonderful week!

Gorgeous TaeEun and the alcohol ink background is beautiful and love the way you have cut it at an angle and gold embossed the bottom of the card with those random lines. I love the pretty gold embossed flowers, wonderful coloured with your gouache paints which have worked excellently. x

Love every inch of this fabulous card, TaeEun! The gold embossed lines on your card-base was a wonderful touch!

The color wash behind the floral image is gorgeous, and a perfect backdrop for your image!

카드가 넘 예쁘다는 말이 무성의해보일 정도로 예뻐요^^ 배경이 꽃을 살려주는 아름다움. 태은님 덕에 저는 알콜잉크에도 슬며시 관심이 가네요. 컬러 버스트도 아직 제대로 다 안써봤는데, 새로운 재료에 솔깃하기만 해서 큰일이에요 ^^;

I just spent an hour going back through all your posts and inking what an amazing artist you are. All your cards are such an inspiration, each so beautifully put together and perfectly explained and so so tempting to make. I feel like sitting in my craft room and make TaeEun creations all day then telling my family look what I made hehehe. You so inspire me my friend especially with the alcohol inks and then I end up thinking The Ton or Altenew but then I came to this post and remembered I ordered this stamp and had forgotten why. Now I remember this was the inspiration, this stunning creation. Ahhh its wonderful being part of your world my friend hugs Aileen
