I Was Wowed! Sometimes The Best Projects Are Spontaneous!

Happy New Year!!

I'm so glad to be back crafting!  I had written plans and got out all the necessary inks and supplies, only to throw the whole thing out the window when I started this project.  The link for the Youtube tutorial with complete instructions is below.

Here's the whole project:

The supplies are linked below (afil) for your convenience!

I got out my new silver sparkle alcohol ink paper, clear embossing powder and the Hero Arts "Bursting With Love" stamp thinking I would use colorful alcohol inks and play.  I know that matte silver card stock embossed with clear can look like etching, but past attempts with other papers weren't great.  I wasn't even shooting for this outcome.  However, when I started heating up this project, HOLY COW!!  It looks like an etched trophy plaque! 

I wanted to keep it simple to show off the shine while adding a smidge of color.  So I used an alcohol marker to color in a few hearts and coated with Glossy Accents for dimension.

I decided to be consistent with the sentiment strip.  To set it off I popped it up on some metallic vellum and wrapped it around Pebble Gray card stock, then attached to a heavy card base.

I know I will come back to this technique often, especially for weddings and anniversaries!  I hope you will try it!
