Playing on a Sunday Afternoon

Good morning all. 

After a busy day in the garden yesterday, I decided to have a chill session playing in the craft room before tea. One of my DT commitments was proving tricky so I gave up and got my alcohol inks out and had a play. The ladies at JUGS want foil on alcohol inked backgrounds so, I looked at my few inks and decided to go with a wintry sky look. I'm still running behind in my efforts to make Christmas cards all through the year, I know, nothing for ages then like London buses two in a row! Here's what I finally ended up with.

I used Sailboat Blue and Turquoise on a thin scrap of Yupo paper, messing around with blender solution, foil and blending tool, I came up with this. Well part of the strip, there's another half left that I can use for another card. 
The foil adheres to the sticky edges of the pooled ink so you have to be quick applying it, I chose silver to go with the blue, then trimmed my panel down and added the little wintry scene using that Marianne tree scape die and a die cut tiny IO deer. The sentiment was stamped onto a white A6 base card and embossed in silver EP, then the finished panel was added on foam pads.
That's one more for the Christmas stash!
