This is what I came up with after watching Tim Holtz videos on alcohol ink techniques.
The blue background was made by dropping the alcohol ink colors stream , butterscotch and mixatives copper onto glossy white cardstock and with the felt applicator tool pounced the colors all around, then using the alcohol blending solution to spread out the color and achieve the desired effects. To make the "leopard spots" strip, I needed to make my own stamp pad so I used Ranger's "cut and dry" stamp pad and placed the colors pitch black, latte and butterscotch on the stamp pad to get the leopard spot design then stamped the custom inked pad all around glossy white cardstock.
My base card color is "curry" from Paper Source.
