Make a Wish with alcohol geode background

Have you seen those beautiful geode birthday cake?  That was my inspiration for the Make A Wish card.  I played around with my alcohol inks, using a brush to make the colors go in an arch.  I added some silver and gold mixative to the Yupo paper.

After the background was finished, it was quite vibrant and the Make A Wish diecut got overshadowed by all the colors and lines, even after I added a black shadow to the die cut.  So I decided to add a layer of vellum - it softens the background but you can still see it and it make the sentiment easier to see.  

I only added glue behind the lettering and the frosted dots to keep the vellum in place.

Hope you like the card!

  1. What an amazing card! Your choice of inspiration is — forgive me —inspired! Those gorgeous colors! And the addition of the frosted dots really carries out the idea of a geode, even if they were added just to help hold down the vellum. Stunning!
