Yupo and alcohol ink flower.

Hi again, it's been so hot outside that I've been cooped up in the craft room!
Except when I dawdle out to jump in the pool, the water temp is 30 degrees but it's all in the mind right lol!

I used up the rest of my yupo alcohol ink panel that I made the other day to diecut  this flower. The yupo needs to pass a few times through the cuttlebug as it has a plastic coating. I diecut a black flower and inlaid the yupo petals into it.

This is a new to me stamp set called scripty sayings. The squiggle is the length of a card so I masked off an area near the embossed border to contain it.

I'm linking up to these challenges.

At AAA Cards the theme is hello!

At the CAS Mix Up Card Challenge you need to use liquid colours in creating a CAS mixed media card.

I've used masking to stamp the sentiment, wet embossing, alcohol inks, dry embossed a frame and used the inlay technique to assemble the petals.

The challenge at Work it Wednesday is new,



Memory Box tilth floral die; yupo paper; alcohol inks and blending solution, isopropyl alcohol; Lawn Fawn scripty sayings stamp; versafine ink & clear ep, Stately embossing folder.

Thanks for visiting,
