Express Yourself Card with alcohol inks and #laviniastamps

My late night play continued into the middle of the night when I made this card.  I dragged out my old alcohol inks, which have not seen the light of day for over a year and created the mottled background on Yupo Paper.

I generally use my stamping platform when I stamp and I did come across a problem with using Yupo paper as it moves around a lot.  I even used a bit of tape and extra magnets, but the Yupo paper wouldn't let go of the stamp.  

I did find a solution by mounting the Yupo Paper onto cardstock.  With a firmer base, it behaved better.  I was then able to stamp the Lavinia Stamps "Moon Pods" and the "Express Yourself" sentiment in StazOn "Iris" shade of ink.

Finally, I added colour using Distress Ink Pens and added Liquid Pearls in a shade of "White Opal" to the Moon Pods.
