Alcohol Inks And The Cloaked Lady

I think I have a new addiction!! Alcohol Inks......I just love the effect they give and the unpredictability of the final result. I decided to use them to create a background for this gorgeous image from Delicious Doodles.

Materials
Image - Delicious Doodles
White gloss card
DP's - Basic Grey Ambrosia
Promarkers
