WWC 203 - Karen's "All about Occasions"

Hello there, it’s time for another Watercooler Wednesday Challenge.  Karen is our hostess this week with "All about Occasions" challenge.

My card today is to celebrate Valentine's Day

I've been playing lately with Alcohol Inks and recently got some Tim Holtz Alcohol Lift Ink. My background was made with Red Pepper and Watermelon inks and some Isopropyl alcohol on Yupo paper.   I took  Simon Says Stamp "Floral Bliss" stamp set and using the Lift Ink stamped one of the bouquets in the set.  Love the very subtle look you get.  I originally went to embossed the sentiment (from Clearly Besotted "All Occasion Sentiments") directly onto the Yupo paper  --- but look what happened. 

Note to self: DO NOT EMBOSS on Yupo.  So slight change of plans.. to the size of my card and how to add the sentiment.  Trimmed off the ruined piece and added the embossed sentiment onto vellum and adhered onto the panel by wrapping it around it.  Then onto a red panel and then onto the card base.  

Come join in the fun and make any type of occasion card. Check out the projects that the artists at Watercooler Wednesday Challenges have created then take the challenge and link your creation to the challenge post. We’d love to have you join us.   You have until Mondays at 5 p.m. Mountain Standard Time (Tuesdays at 1pm NZ time) to link up your project.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

I have this stamp set and love what you did with your card. I am just about to sign up for a Nicole Peterson Yupo paper/alcohol ink class as I think it is such a pretty and dramatic technique. Lovely card!

love the colors of alcohol ink you used for your lovely card - yes i know about embossing on yupo paper too - i bought the alcohol lift ink but haven't had such good success like you did.

Beautiful card and I just love your choice of colour. Alcohol inks are really fun to work with as you're never quite sure what you'll end up with :)

Glad you could save the panel as it is absolutely gorgeous, Dawn! I still haven't opened my lift ink pad, but you've inspired me to change that!

I love the way you change the idea
