Card with a Glassine Bag

Just sharing a card that I made a while ago. I was playing alcohol inks and experimented it with glassine bags...and totally forgot to post here. 
A day filled with love
Supplies: Heart Wing Butterfly, Pom Pom Flower by Hero Arts, sentiment and white wavy lines by SRM Stickers

That's the beauty of playing with alcohol inks. It's like opening a box of chocolate--you never know what you are gonna get! In this case, I love the burst of colors on the glassine bags! 

Wishing you a day filled with love!

Virginia, this is absolutely gorgeous. The ink colors are so vibrant, and I love the way the colors mix and yet stand alone with varied degrees of depth and intensity. The butterfly is beautiful. The bold sentiment really pops.
