Smile

Hi everyone.  Sharing another card made with Acetate.  This time I poured my Alcohol Inks on top and then tilted the panel so they ran.  I like the look of texture that was created.  I then stamped wildflowers on top, heat embossing them in liquid platinum.  The acetate sheets I use do take the heat gun, but I don't leave it too long or it will start to melt and curl.

I added a simple white frame around my image panel and heat embossed Smile at the bottom.  Fun, easy card.

Here's a close-up ...

I'm heading over to add this to the CAS Mix Up March Challenge - Acetate, that is being hosted by my friend Susan.  Acetate is a great product that you can do so much with!

I do love all that linear movement in your AIs, those colours work so well together. Fabulous platinum flowers and sentiment all with that wide white frame, got to get some heatable acetate. Stunning Loll, xx

The running alcohol ink background is stunning, Loll ... so rich and with such a fantastic sense of movement ... the delicate embossed blooms are a fabulous contrast with it's boldness! Hugs, Anita :)

This alcohol ink on acetate is beautiful and the silver embossed flowers over the top work really well and love the frame and the large heat embossed sentiment too. x

The platinum florals really make the colors of the alcohol inks pop. Like the way you've designed this acetate piece with the nice framing too! TFS

Love how you have used the AI's here Loll (I've never seen that technique, I'm guessing it's one of your own), I must give it a try, adds so much interest! Have a great day my friend! Love & Hugs. Hazel xx

Love the watery look of those AI's dripping down Loll - and great color choices too! The silver embossed stems look lovely over the colors! Julia xx
