A little alcohol?

Hello folks,
Thanks for dropping in on this lovely day, we are planning some gardening today, so I can't be too long...
This card is one I did for The Diva Red workshop with Moira last weekend.
The patterned card is done with alcohol inks on the Clarity Chromo card, this is ultra glossy card and works well with alcohol inks.
I like to do one colour at a time and add plenty of blending solution, then add the next colour.
I also coloured a small piece of acetate.
The butterfly is stamped with black archival on the opposite side to the inks, then cut out.
The patterned card is just cut a curvy shape along the bottom edge and stuck on the base card.
The good thing about Clarity stamps is that you can bend them a bit on the mounts to fit the line of the card.
Add a few gems and you're done!
Stamps used: Butterfly, Line sentiments and Chromo card

Have a fab weekend and I hope you can make the most of the sunshine!
