So...I got down and dirty the other day when I played with a variety of alcohol inks (Pink Sherbet and Wild Plum by Ranger used here) to create some fun backgrounds. I was inspired after watching one of Jennifer McGuire's tutorials HERE. This was my first attempt and I tended to overwork the two ink colors but went ahead and splattered some yellow gold paint from Gansai Tambi's Starry Colors palette and used it as a backdrop for this awesome new Falling Hearts Panel die just released this month by Reverse Confetti!
Because I used gold splatters, I wanted to mat the white panel with
Gold Mirror cardstock. I struggled with deciding on the base card color but finally went with this lighter pink to pick up the lighter pink tones in the alcohol inks. A simple white embossed sentiment on black - from Reverse Confetti's Heart Filled Sentiment set - topped it off! I created a second card identical to this layout but in different, non-traditional Valentine colors. I will post that one on a later date.
