Alcohol Ink Background Casting the Bait Birthday Wishes

My son loves fly fishing and red is his favorite color, so I decided the create an alcohol ink background that would look like colorful red sunset and then stamp the silhouette image of a fisherman from Woodware Stamps called Casting the Bait.  Love the way it turned out.

I used Terra Cotta, Watermelon, Caramel, Sunshine Yellow Ranger Alcohol Inks for the background.  When it was almost dry I used some Craft Deco Gold Foil, which would cling to the areas that still had a little moisture.  It created a striking background.  I left it to dry overnight and then sprayed it with Grumbacher Matte Final Fixative Spray before stamping the image from Woodware Stamp Set Casting the Bait.  I then ran it through the Big Shot with a My Favorite Things A2 Stitched Rectangle.  Darice Sticky Back Foam was added to the back and then it was adhered to a side folding cardbase made from Gina K. Designs Black Onyx Base Weight Cardstock and the card was done.
