Fun with Alcohol (Ink that is) Part 2

While working on my previous challenges, I was inspired to make some more Alcohol Background cards. I used 3 colours or Ranger’s Alcohol inks, splattered/dropped on Glossy card stock, then stamped with Staz-on Black Ink. The stamp I used is by Magenta Stamps – Wildflowers – Umbells . Here are my 2 cards.
