One Plus Twelve: Foxy's August Adventures!

Hi friends!

Today's card is one I made with a little bit of alcohol :)
 As in ... 
alcohol inks!

This technique is one of my VERY favorites to do ~
Ranger alcohol inks and yupo paper!
You never quite know what going to create
and each time is a unique color and new surprise!

This is my card for the One Plus Twelve ~
a card idea I had to use ONE stamp 
- just one stamp -
 and create a card once a month to stretch the use of the stamp
and find creative ways to use it :)
The stamp I'm using all year is Warm Wishes from Honey Bee Stamps
I asked Barb and Jeanette to play along and you can see their cards, too.

For this card, the background medium I've used Ranger alcohol inks
 in Valencia, Citrus and Patima
and added them directly to the yupo paper.
As it was moving around, I used alcohol blending solution
to give it the bubble splatter shape.
Once it was dry, I used my MFT stitched wonky die-namics.
I use them often on many of my cards because I really love them ♥

Foxy, as I've lovingly called him this year, is colored with prismacolor markers
and I paper-pieced his shirt with a sheet of Lawn Fawn dsp.

I left the inside of this one blank as I'm not sure what I'll do with it yet :)
I do know that I have a lot of fun backgrounds still to use,
so I'll think of fun cards to make.
I have to get my thinking cap on for the catch up cards I have to make, too!

 Thanks for stopping by!
Big hugs, bigger blessings ♥
