Special Wishes

I mixed things up a bit and used alcohol inks on a masculine card.

IO birthday copyright linda snailzpace.com

i blended alcohol inks on a piece of an elizabeth craft designs shimmer sheetz, embossed it with the Sizzix Texture Fades Embossing Folder – Flourish and then sanded it to reveal the silver core. i cut it into squares and matted each with black glossy cardstock. i masked off part of the impression obsession sentiment and i finished the card off with some designer paper and gold mirri.

i’m playing along with the As You Like It challenge: Favourite type of embossing and why. I love to emboss and sand watercolour paper or shimmer sheetz to reveal some highlights of texture; i am much more successful with this than heat embossing.

thanks for popping by.
