Alcohol Ink Backgrounds



Hi everyone!

I have a Christmas card I made for a few challenges today.
 I used some of my alcohol ink backgrounds and stamps from Serendipity. I find they look and work so well for this type of stamping. I put a frame around it using Impression Obsession 5 in 1 die. I adhered four of them together for some dimension. I also embossed a few lines behind the frame. The sentiment is from SU's Calm Christmas. I love that set!

Here is a link to some alcohol ink info from Tim Holtz. I use glossy paper, and stamp with black stazon.

Can you see the depth of the colors in the top photo? Below I just changed the position of the card, and now you can see the lighter tones.
