Happy New Year!

Just a quick, colorful card to wish everyone a Happy New Year. I have spent today and probably will spend tonight as well playing with Ranger's Alcohol inks and eating tasty treats. I cannot drink alcohol due to new meds so figured I should have some sort of alcohol to ring in the new year! LOL
I made this colorful background using a bunch of Ranger Alcohol inks on glossy cardstock and used compressed air to spread the color around. I thought it looked a bit like fireworks.
The stamped images were stamped on matte white cardstock with Pitch Black Adirondack ink but when I cut them out and put them on the background they were really too white! So I tried putting alcohol inks on the matte cardstock as well and it worked like a charm! Very handy when one is working at home with VERY limited supplies. Will have to play a bit more on matte cardstock. I added some Star Dust Stickles to the fireworks for some extra sparkle!
Here is to a fantastic 2013!
Stamps used: Hero Arts Happy New Year & clear set All the Time (a Operation Write Home set)

Happy New Year to you! Love your card! So fun! I've never used Alcohol Ink - definitely on my to-do list. I had a few beers last night so I made up for you not being able to drink. ;)
