I was in the mood for alcohol inks for my cards today. Mostly due to their brilliant colours.
For this card I am using this wonderful image from My Favorite Things called Beautiful Blooms, along with Yupo paper and alcohol inks in Raspberry, Sunset Orange and Sunshine Yellow. I added dots of ink along the edge of a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser and ran the edge across my card panel, then added more ink and did it again. I then added drops of the blending solution to the edge of the sponge and touched it to the surface to get this cool design around the card. 
Using the Alcohol Lift-It ink pad I stamped the images to the card front, buffed it to get a good impression, then went over the stamped lines with my Uni-Posca Pen, which gives it this brilliant white finish. 
One that was complete I attached the panel to my card base. I then tore off a strip of vellum and with Versamark ink stamped my sentiment and heat embossed with the bright pink embossing powder, attaching with vellum tape. To finish I added a few drops of Rosewater Nuvo Crystal Drops.
For my second card I again used alcohol inks and the beautiful Peony from Picket Fence Studios. Blue was the colour of choice for this card, using alcohol inks in aqua, sailboat blue, stonewashed and indigo, along with the alcohol ink blending solution. 
I let it dry slightly, then added the deco foil in gold. For the flower in my Misti I stamped the image at least 5 times to get a very good impression on the alcohol ink background.
I then matted the piece with the glitter card stock using the Be Creative Tape to ensure good contact, then attached to my card base. It is a simple card, but I think very pretty. 

Next up is Laurie. A complete list of the hop follows.
