Artsygirlz challenge ! backgrounds !



This week over at the artsygirlz challenge blog the challenge is to make your own backgrounds and i have had these alcohol inks a couple of weeks now so this challenge really inspired me to have a go with them. Well this is my first attempt !! After i inked the background i stamped flourishes then i heat embossed them with black embossing powder. I then used my cricut walk in my garden cart to make the flower which i cut 3 times 2 1/2" 2" and 1 1/2 " i layered and inked and added silver to the edges then finished the flower off with a crystal in the centre ! I then cut 2 flourishes from accent essentials and inked and heat embossed these. This does look
better in real life !

Very beautiful background. I'm so pleased my challenge inspired you. I adore Alcohol inks because you can use the same colours & never get the same effect twice!
