It's a Challenge Friday
I love the background on this. It is done with alcohol inks on glossy cardstock. We did several of these in different colors in my card workshop so that everyone could try their hand at alcohol inks to see how they liked them. It was really a lot of fun. Messy (smile) but fun. It was interesting too, how different each person's looked. Directions are the same, but everyone has a different way of doing it and it was really surprising. This one turned out a beautiful orange with lots of darker reds (and a little green) too.
The scalloped off-white square was cut with my Cricut and embellished w/a little bling. The off-white square in the middle is matted in the burgundy and then the corners are cut with the ticket corner punch (I love that punch). The heart is metal with black brads. And the ribbon is a bow tied and then pierced with a pin. I added beads to the pin to dress it up.
So there you are.
Thanks for coming by and looking.
I'll be back soon.
