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!

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!
