Use That Alcohol-inked Paper

Hello friends!
I have a very organic and rustic card to share today.
https://shrsl.com/26df1
It started out with a piece of alcohol-inked paper that I created.
At that time, I was not too impressed with my DIY paper.

However, once I got out the new Penny Black stamp "Country Charisma" and Die "Creative Curves",  things started to look up.

thanks -001

I decided to keep part of the die cut pieces in tact because the color mix from the Alcohol Ink were  beautiful. Thus, I only took part of the pieces off.
thanks

I then stamped and die cut the flower pieces from
"Country Charisma" with the Coordinating Die.

This set also comes with coordinating dies which I used in this card.
thanks for being a great friend

Lastly, I white-embossed the sentiment on black cardstock.
thanks

I love how this turned out. It truly was a very satisfying process. I highly encourage you to "just play" with your supplies and enjoy the process. It is relaxing and therapeutic.
I will be back with another post on how to stretch the Creative Curve Die.

The alcohol inked die cut is such a lovely background for your die cut flower! Leaving some of the pieces in the die cut background adds so much texture! Very pretty card.
