Happy Little Stampers Mixed Media Challenge for November - Alcohol Inks

Do pop over to Happy Little Stampers to see the fabulous inspiration for this Challenge!

Here's my card for this month:

The card is made using a technique
 which Tim Holtz explains as Alcohol Inks Agates technique.
I took a piece of glossy card and applied gold and silver alcohol inks to it with felt on an applicator tool. I then stamped over with Ink Blending Solution to blend the colours.
Finally I stamped over with a Medallion stamp and Black Stazon.

I cut this card into three strips and mounted them on three strips of blue card. I attached these to a white card blank.
I then added a horizontal strip of blue with two small rectangles of the background on it - and finally a sentiment from Imagine That Digistamps Snowing Cupcakes.

Happy Crafting!
