Happy Birthday 1

 Hi all

Today I wrestled in my head as to what to make. Then I decided when I found my alcohol inks from my mixed media days so out they came
300gsm smooth card stock

Tracing paper instead of vellum - much much cheaper same effect
alcohol inks Raspberry, Sailboat blue and citrus blended with Isopropanol industrial 99%

Once happy with effect I stamped over the inks using a background flower stamp (unbranded) and heat embossed using copper ultrafine embossing powder. I then stamped again at different angle and embossed using silver
I used an unbranded tag die and embossed the larger size to look like a frame
Stuck a teen weeny lilac diamante to the top
Front of card with tag aperture fixed to front using double sided foam tape
Die cut my memory box poppies twice and layered. popped double sided foam under the flower to keep it level when stuck down
sentiment stamp is unbranded
2nd pic I tried to show the shiny embossing

Thank you for dropping in to look at my blog
