More Copper with Alcohol Inks
Hi everyone. Hope you aren't sick of seeing my copper cards. :) This is another one that I started last Saturday when friends were over crafting. We added alcohol inks to our copper metal die-cuts and then blotted up with a bit of paper towel. It is even prettier and shinier in real life. :)
LOVE this large maple. I made it as a sample to show the girls, but then didn't end up making any more as I used one of those wafer thin dies to cut the copper and it was a PITA to get it cut out. :) But I made darn sure that I used it after spending lots of time fiddling with it. Love the vein embossing and how it took the alcohol inks (I used just yellow and red).
I also like it over top of a wood embossed background. And happy with how it looks with the black sentiment border embossed in white. Easy card to put together since the maple leaf was already done. :)
Since it' a CAS card and it has some Yellow --- the optional element for STAMPlorations March CAS Challenge, I'm heading over to enter there.
Thanks for stopping by for a visit!
