What Color is Love?


I've had fun lately playing with alcohol inks.

I did several panels using the Alcohol Ink Smoosh technique on Yupo paper
 that Loll shared with us.

This Simon Says Stamp Stitched Heart Collage Die
 is perfect for showing off these backgrounds.

You'll probably be seeing more cards using this die and the smooshed Yupo.
I made lots!

This week's Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge is

Cool, love that mixed up smooshed background. I'm not sure what color love it but I'm sure it is a weird color... you know the kind of color that makes you feel a little queasy... just like love!

Bonnie the die cut showcases the AI background perfectly, I also love the splash of colour on the bottom of the card.

Love that stitched heart die! And the beautiful shades of red and gold from the AIs. Great touch adding that tiny gold heart to it!

The smooshing red looks smashing on this card! Love the curvy stitched border with the red & gold heart center stage. Love is definitely the color of RED in this pretty card. TFS

The hearts give us a peek but that panel at the bottom really shows off the beautiful smooshed paper, Bonnie.

Oh, I love this card! I am a little addicted to alcohol inks, myself, but I haven't pulled them out for a while. Now I will have to. I am also going to have to check out that die. Thank you for sharing and I can't wait to see what else you come up with. I would love to share my own creations with you. I am always looking to connect with fellow crafters for feedback and inspiration. If you would like to take a look - <a href="http://thecraftycritter.com>http://thecraftycritter.com</a>
