Seize the Birthday #259 - Alcohol

Shirley is the host for this challenge.  She picked a topping that was a challenge for me.  
The challenge is not drinking alcohol, but making alcohol backgrounds. 
Of course, she said it could use inks or the drink too. I hope you at least try a topping! 


Here are some of my out takes. I tried watercolor paper and glossy paper and finally changed up the stamp that I was using. That did the trick and I got one to use after 6 tries. 
I hope you are more successful. 

Here is my card. 

So hard to get the silver to photograph. 

After watching Jennifer make her alcohol backgrounds, I did mine with these inks and a homemade  felt pad. It worked. 
The  other supplies are: The Greetery Rubber background stamp Fond of Folidge
                                       Happy Birthday die from Simon Says
                                        Siver card stock from Gina K 

Our Surprise Party Guest is Hilary Wright Check out her cards and give her some love too. 

The rest of the team is here!
