A fun technique!

OK, folks—I was asked to post some of my cards. I really am apprehensive, but here goes….

I spent some time last Sunday teaching some crafting friends how to use a few of the fun products that are out there, specifically embossing powders and alcohol inks. Here are a couple of cards I recently made that combine the two:

Both cards have alcohol ink backgrounds with the images heat embossed and matted on cardstock. The train card on the right uses a sketch from one of the World Card Making Day challenges over at SCS.  So, I would like to encourage you to get out those alcohol inks that you had to have but never use, and make some backgrounds! You can make some stunning cards with very little investment in time and effort. And as always, be sure to share your creations with me!

I will try to post more cards later this afternoon (specifically the Christmas card samples I’m teaching at Angie and Rena’s church next month). But for now, I have to get ready for Pilates and then go to work (bummer!).

P.S. Queen Pam: Thanks for the tip about Live Writer—it works like a charm!
