BSS-Monday Challenge-Alcohol Ink

Good Morning and happy Monday. It's time for the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff Monday Challenge. The challenge this week is to use Alcohol inks to create beautiful designs on glossy white cardstock. There is a great tutorial at ww.splitcoaststampers.com/resources/tutorials/alcohol_ink on creating this great look.
After I created a sheet with each of the colors I chose, I cut out the ornaments using a Sizzix die.
(you could use circles). I ran each ornament through a different embossing folder for texture. I stamped pine boughs at the top of the card. Then added glitter. I Put strings through the ornaments. I glued the blue ornament to the card, the green I popped up and the red I popped up a little higher to give them depth. The paper for the card is cut from S.E.I. Winter Song line. Hope you have time to try this technique, you can get some really gorgeous papers to work with. Have a great Monday. Until tomorrow.................
