Can't stop, won't [stop using Alcohol Inks]

Hey there friends,

Good morning from Alcohol-ink-obsession-land. I'm here and I'm deep in the highlands of it. WOW I'm finding it hard to create anything that doesn't start with those gorgeous blooms of colour.

I'm not concerned about this, it'll pass at some stage and at least I'm creating, right?  I'm up on the A Blog Named Hero Facebook page today.

Ok so on to my card.  I've stuck with the theme for A Blog Named Hero's current challenge which is

Here it is,

For the card I took my alcohol inks and dropped colour around my card, then splashed some alcohol over the top, and blew on the puddles, to shift the colours where I wanted them. Once I was sufficiently high from the fumes, I set that aside and stamped my sentiment.

Once the card was dry, I stamped and heat embossed the beautiful floral and jar image from the Hero Arts Monthly Card kit from several months ago (Can't stop using this either!), carefully masking off the jar rim area.  I used Hero Arts white embossing powder as always.

I adhered my sentiment, popped the coloured panel on foam tape and layered that onto a piece of coordinating fuchsia cardstock, then adhered all of that to a white cardbase.  Easy Peasy, and barely a hint of a headache from the smell :)

Thats all from me!

Be sure to check out the A Blog Named Hero site for heaps more inspiration and enter the challenge while you're there!

See you soon

Absolutely beautiful, love the depth of colour of the alcohol inks and the white embossing over it.
