Playing with alcohol inks is messy....but oh so much fun :-)

I made this card for a work colleague to say Thank You for doing something really kind for us this week.
I made the image by blending two colours of Rangers alcohol ink and the silver mixative, then overstamped with a tiny rubber stamp i picked up in a sale using Stayzon ink, i mounted it on card stock and decorated with ribbon from Crafty Ribbons. The sentiment is another stamp from a sale, i wasn't 100% happy with the way i stamped the edge so i cut it down using my Big Shot and a scalloped circle nestie. Unfortunately the metallic look hasn't shown up too well in the photo but i was really pleased with it.
