All is Bright

Hi friends! Today I'm popping in with another poinsettia card. I really can't get enough of this big flower from Poinsettia Greetings! For my card today, I'm using alcohol inks and the emboss resist technique.

I haven't really played much with alcohol inks, but I always love the results. To start the card, I grabbed some Spectrum Noir alcohol reinkers and yupo paper and just started to play.  I embossed the Poinsettia Greetings image in white, then started adding the alcohol inks.  When this was dry I added some drops of metallic ink for a bit of interest. The metallic inks are water reactive, so don't try to do this when the alcohol inks are still wet, or you'll get a muddy mess! Ask me how I know! 😉 Once I had the flower how I wanted it, I fussy cut it and then added some pearl clusters from my stash for the flower center.

I was quite messy with my alcohol inks, so the background is a panel made by smooshing into the leftover inks on my glass mat. I added a bit of blending solution and puffed on it with a straw for some fun effects.

I finished with the All is Calm and All is bright sentiments from the Christmas Wordfetti set. I just love all the sentiments in this set! I then added a few snowflake sequins (from Target a few years back) and embellished with a teeny pearl in the center of each one.
