January Cas Mix Up Challenge - Liguid Colors

Happy New Year Everyone!  Not only is it a new year -  but there is a new challenge up over at the CAS Mix Up Challenge!
I used stamping, Alcohol Inks as my liquid colors, a die cut sentiment and sequins.
Here's how I used the Adirondack Alcohol Inks.  I got out Stonewashed, Lettuce and Gold Mixative Alcohol Inks and dropped some of each onto the applicator felt on a Blending tool

Then I pounced the blending tool over a piece of Yupo paper on my nonstick craft mat until I was happy with the design and coverage.
I cut the panel in half , each 2 1/2" x 3 1/2", and was able to make two cards from it. I layered the panel over a white card stock base.  I stamped the happy on a small white rectangle and layered it over the Yupo piece with foam dots.  I die cut the birthday from black card stock and adhered it along the bottom.  To finish off my design, I added 3 blue sequins.
So how will you use liquid colors on your card?  Please link it up over at the CAS Mix Up Challenge - where you'll find a video from Loll on how she used Alcohol Inks as well as wonderful inspiration from the Design Team!

LOVE the colours you've used for your polished stone background. Such a fun way to use alcohol inks! Always great when you can get two cards from one fantastic background. Love your card design ... the happy on a sentiment banner and black die-cut birthday really pop off the AI background. xx

Love the strong pattern you've achieved with the alcohol inks, Julia! The die cut birthday is perfect! Looks like a great masculine or feminine card!

AI's seem to be the most popular liquid colour of choice. Really pretty background and I love how you got two cards out of it.

Love how you gave a pastel shade to your great choice of colours. The composition of your sentiment is truly creative, keeping the design nice and CAS. Your card is beautiful.

Beautiful colours for that great background! Love the simplicity of the card, with the sentiment allowing the background to take centre stage!
