In My Thoughts
by Sue McRae
Hello everyone! Sue here with another heart card that can be used for a thinking of you card or switch out the sentiment to send some love for Valentine’s Day.
I started by laying alcohol inks and blending solution on yupo paper. I created a rainbowish mix of colours using an air blower to move the ink around. After the panel was dry I placed the Leaf Flourish Heart Die in different spots around the piece to see where I liked the colours the best and die cut it from that section.
To add a little sparkle and depth to the card design I die cut another Leaf Flourish Heart from gold glitter cardstock and adhered it to the back of the alcohol ink heart.
To add more texture and depth to the card I embossed a white panel with the Geometric Crystals 3D Embossing Folder and attached the heart to it. I added this piece to my card base.
The sentiment was heat embossed in white on black cardstock and I added a few Clear Fairy Drops to finish off the card.
This is an easy and quick card design that really stands out from the alcohol ink technique. I hope you give it a try! Have a wonderful week!
A beautiful card, Sue! Thanks for sharing your creativity!
Hi Sue, Starting with the beautiful embossing folder for the background, then the stunning alcohol inks and the formation they made, then the die cut out of that inked yupo paper and married up with a glitter card dropped shadow, and the sentiment completes this card beautifully.
Lots of love from Patricia xx
