Valentine's day is getting closer - do you have your card for your loved one ready?

I had this alcohol ink panel lying around. I didn't like it so it's just been sitting there. I first dry embossed it with the new Memory Box Heart Bouquet 3D embossing folder. I then poured on some isopropyl alcohol to reactivate the colors. I kept moving the panel until it was all activated.

I let some of the ink drip off. It was too purple for me. And this is what I ended with. In hindsight I probably should have stopped now because this in my opinion shows the embossing better.

But I didn't stop. I added new pink and purple alcohol inks, layering until I was happy with the look. Once dry I used a fine nail file over the embossed areas to remove the alcohol ink and make them stand out more. IMG_20200120_204713
I cut the panel to size and cut the Meadowblossom frame from white cardstock and layered over it. The heart shape in the embossed panel just fits inside the cut out heart on the meadowblossom frame, so pretty! I then cut the Love flourish from white cardstock and placed it inside the heart.
Happy crafting!

Hi Tina, I love this !! your alcohol ink background is fabulous and I'm loving the effect of the embossing folder on the background and your finished background is fabulous and the frame die-cut completes this card beautifully.
