Alcohol Ink #love Flower Card

I promised another Springy Alcohol Ink card, so I am back again this month. This card was also featured in the Ranger Ink booth at Creativation this year. Thanks for looking and for all the comments on the last card. Here's to flower LOVE!!!!
I stamped a piece of Tim's new Heavy Stock, cut to card size, with the Newsprint stamp from Tim and Stamper's Anonymous with Paradise Teal Archival. Then over that I stamped some of the Wildflowers with Wendy's Fern Green. I set this aside.
I covered a piece of the Translucent Yupo...cut same size as the Heavy Stock...with Pool Alcohol Ink using the Applicator. Then I eyeballed the stamp sizes of the flower parts I wanted to use, and tried to make patches on the card using the Alcohol Ink, by dripping it on. I let the yellow dry before doing the green, and let it run by turning the card on its sides.
I stamped the flowers onto the Alcohol Ink areas as best I could, and I love the way some parts don't match up...that's Art!
I used Adhesive Strips on the back sides of the Yupo and attached it to the Heavy Stock. The strips are not seen at all. I dripped on more Honeycomb and Sunshine Yellow, but this time much smaller. Then I drew stems for them using a white pen. I finished by sewing around the card, and stamping the sentiments.
Easter is right around the corner, so I'll be back soon! Until then, stop and smell the flowers!

I hope your hands get creatively dirty soon!
