I've just recently dived into using alcohol inks and I have been making Father's Day cards. This challenge at Just Us Girls is perfectly timed.
I used the Ranger mini ink blending tool & felt pads in a pouncing motion to do the background. I didn't use and blending solution on this card and thought it came out quite pretty. The lighter areas of the card have silver mixative so they shine but that is hard to see in the photo.
