Created Byhand Challenge - Alcohol Inks

The challenge on Created Byhand is to use alcohol inks. The background started with glossy white paper... I used Ranger alcohol inks cranberry and meadow along with the blending solution on the paper, ran it through the snowflake cuttlebug folder, rubbed a sanding block over the embossing to bring it out more, sponged Brilliance moonlight white ink around the edges and made the "stitching" around the edges with the Inkssential white pen. Season's Greetings is stamped on white cardstock with Distress Ink fired brick, trimmed with deckle scissors, edges rubbed with fired brick, layered to a deep pink cardstock and then white cardstock... I again dabbed some fired brick ink around the edges of the piece and added 3 gold heart brads to the bottom. Layered the background piece on a folded deep pink card, then the greeting piece as shown, punched out 3 white snowflakes, glued them on and added stickles glitter glue to the centers.
