Get Well Soon alcohol ink floral card

Hi crafty friends! I had so much fun making the alcohol ink card in yellow, I decided to make one in pink for my close friend's mom, who recently broke her leg. I restocked on the Ranger alcohol inks I was low on (a lot of them are retiring!) and got to work on this traditional slim line card.

To begin, I cut a piece of Yupo paper to the size of a traditional slimline card. To create the flower, I used Ranger alcohol inks in Shell pink, Gumball, and Flamingo. I started with a base of Shell pink and then continued to add more until I was happy with the way the "petals" looked. I used compressed air to move the inks around.

Once I was happy with the flower, I added the center. To do this, I took an acrylic block and placed a few drops of each of the following colors on it: Salmon, Sunset orange, Valencia, and Teakwood (a sort of brownish orange). I took a Q-tip and added the lightest color (Salmon) the the center area. Then I layered the other colors on top, finishing with the Teakwood. Once this was dry, I took some Bearly Art glue and placed little pinpoint dots over some of the orange, and then sprinkled with some Stampendous Sunshiny yellow Fun Flock to give it a soft, real "flowery" feel. I set this aside to dry and got to work choosing my sentiment.

I decided to use the Get Well Soon sentiment from the Lawn Fawn set Get Well Soon. This is the cutest little set and I love the stamps in it! I cut a small piece of 110 lb. white cardstock and placed it in my Misti stamping tool and stamped the sentiment in VersaFine ink in black onyx ink. I cut the sentiment out and adhered it to a layer of black110 lb. cardstock and then adhered this to the panel. After this, I adhered the entire panel to the card base.

I really love how this one turned out! I love the vibrant pinks, and I am having so much fun working with alcohol inks again!

Thanks for stopping by to check this out! Have a great day!
