Celebrate Dad with Alcohol Inks

I love the work that our design team member is doing with Hot Off the Press. Here are her notes for this card featuring HOTP's Masculine Collage stamp:
Select the paper colors and alcohol inks you want to use in advance. For this sample, the emphasis was on blues and greens
Cut glossy paper to 5 1/2 x 4 1/4. *NOTE - Glossy paper for printing pictures does NOT work
Working on a craft sheet, select 2-3 colors of alcohol inks.  Drop 2-3 drops of the selected colors on the felt side of a wooden applicator.  Place dots next to each other.  Using felt inked applicator dab inks onto glossy paper covering entire surface. 
Very sparingly drop blending solution on inked paper to pull some color out.  DO NOT HEAT SET.  Let air dry.
Trim inked paper to 5 x 3 3/4
Using solvent ink pad (Black StazOn) stamp image and words over inked surface
Metallic gel pens in silver and blue were used to accent image
Take your folded card stock (blue) and cut/punch corners with decorative design
Take next layer of card stock (green), trim to 5 1/4 x 4, cut/punch corners with decorative design, adhere blue folded card stock
Attach completed stamped image
