The other day I watched a Jennifer McGuire video about embossing over alcohol inked backgrounds and really had to give it a go.  

On both of my cards, I just used regular AI on yupo paper.  The top has some gold metallic AI spatter in it and the lower one has some gold foil flecks.  After embossing the backgrounds, I sanded the raised designs.  

I am entering my cards at Just Us Girls challenge for this week which is embossing folders and since I used a SSS sentiment (Tiny Words) on the lower card, it's going into the SSS Flicker challenge "Anything Goes."

This week at PTI's Win It Wednesday, the challenge is to use a  favorite "Make It Monday" idea for our card.  I used MIM#317 to use outline images for an inspiration.

The outline flowers are from the "Delightful Dahlia" stamp set and the smaller flowers are from "Botanical Silhouettes" (both retired).

Thanks for visiting and always enjoy reading your kind comments.
