Dies R Us - You Are Sweet

Dear Ones~
Today over at the Dies R Us Inspiration Blog I show how to make a card that could be used for many occasions.

Here's my card:
I recently watched THIS video where Kelly Latevola showed us how to do alcohol inking with gold foil details. I'm tellin' ya, this is a stunner. You MUST WATCH this if you use alcohol inks. The technique is so much fun and the results are amazing. I used a little panel of it here on this card. 

Here is a close up of the panel. I wish you could see it in real life, this photo doesn't do it justice. It's really hard to photograph that gold foiling but it's there.
 Hop on over to the Dies R Us Inspiration Blog to see how I made this card.

SU Rich Razzleberry Card Stock
GKD White and Blue Lagoon Card Stock
Bazzill Gold Foil Card Stock

  1. WOW! how did I miss this one.. Love the AI background. Something I am playing around with at the moment and loving it. I bet the gold foil looks amazing IRL. Fabulous Judy.

  2. Gorgeous, love all the gold and combo of colors...elegant and beautiful!!

  3. This is marvelous, Judy. Thanks for sharing the link. I watched both videos and will be playing with my alcohol inks again soon. I did some yesterday and totally forgot about the blending solution. I still got some good backgrounds using other techniques but I love how yours and Kelly's turned out.

  4. This is lovely! I've never used alcohol inks, but I'm sure going to watch the video. Love all of the gold accents too. Beautiful card!
