Thanks for all of your lovely comments! JeannieD wanted to know how I did the background so here it is!
Alcohol inks: Meadow, Purple Twilight and Cloudy Blue.
I started by loading my felt applicator and added blending solution and tapped it all over.
I then used the blending solution and dropped dots here and there to make it flow. Once the circles were large enough and pools of ink were created I then went back with the applicator and very gently touched the pools. If some spaces have the colour blending together too much, take some cloudy blue and add dots here and there along with more blending solution to lighten it up. Once again use your applicator and very gently touch down here and there to make a marble effect.
If you look at the top of the inked backgroiund you will see that I touched it a tiny bit too much and left a straight edge.. Oops!
I keep playing with it until I see something I like. The paper is pretty saturated when I am done!
Thanks for looking!!
