Crafty play time

Hiya folks!  I'm hoping to start sharing my homework from another class soon but in the meantime I thought I'd share a card I just finished. 

I got my hands on the brand new Alcohol Lift-Ink pad from Tim Holtz.  I played around and created an alcohol ink piece and then busted out the ink pad.  FYI--the lift-ink doesn't seem to work as well on the metallic mixatives.  I forgot to snap a good picture of my alcohol ink piece.  Whoops!

Anywho, I used the gorgeous new stamp from Simon Says Stamp called Strangeness.  This beauty was designed by Stephanie Low (check her out on Instagram!).  I stamped it on the alcohol piece and took it straight to Neenah white cardstock.  Because the colors I used were fairly light, the resulting image was very pale.  Note for future reference.

I couldn't just let it go to waste so I grabbed three Copic Markers and attempted some almost no-line coloring.

I did create a bit of a drop shadow with N1 and N0 to try and make it pop out a bit more.  The sentiment I used is from a Trinity Stamps set.  Sequins from my stash.  I popped the whole card front up on foam tape and glued to a gray card base.  Bam!
