Wacky Wednesday #10 Favorite Technique

Rubbernecker Stamps has another Wacky Wednesday challenge; use your favorite technique! There are several techniques I enjoy using, but someone, dear to me, really likes Tim Holtz's Adirondack®Alcohol Inks, so am submitting this card for the challenge. The flowers were cut, and edged with a gold pen, using a template from MissCutiePieGoes80s; you'll want to check out her great blog. The "petals" were stacked with a small pop dot in between for dimension. I made a conscious effort to make a card that isn't "accessorized" with black; it really took some effort, too :-D The doodle parts, "fake leaves", were embossed with the same folder used for the Berry Sorbet cs. Although it's difficult to see in the picture, a pearl alcohol ink was added for some shimmer. I like all the metallic inks!

Thanks for the visit today; hope you decide to return soon!
Gigi

Oh wow Gigi. I love the way you've done the background. Sometimes that look is perfect for the card and this time it is!
