Alcohol inks and foil.

Hi everyone, I'm back after a bit of a break.
 Life was so busy that I had no time in the craft room.Still getting through a huge list of things I have to do but I'm feeling like I can cope a bit better now !

I was inspired by the challenge at Freshly Made Sketches for this layout. I've rotated the sketch so I hope that's ok.
I used regular and pearl alcohol inks with blending solution on glossy card stock for the panel. I also spritzed some isopropyl alcohol lightly to get some more dotty texture. 
I added some patina foil onto the sticky ink residue and the stars are diecut from silver foil paper.

Here's a closer look.

The theme at Work it Wednesday is to foil it.
At Simon Says Stamp Wednesday it's anything goes.

Inkspirational has a choice of using 3 or 5. I've gone with three stars.

And at Watercooler Wednesday it's all about occasions.

Ranger alcohol inks, regular and pearl; Papertrey Ink star dies; Rebekah Meier patinal foil; silver foil paper; sentiment sticker.

Thanks for visiting,
Cathy x

Gorgeous card Cathy! I love those pearlized alcohol inks. I wasn't going to buy them ... but I may just have to! :) The bits of silver foiling and the silver foil stars are so pretty with your mix of blue inks. Happy to hear things have settled a little bit for you. xx
