ATC and Alcohol Inks..............

Wicked Wednesday ATC challenge this week is Flowerful.  The design team have used a digi image from Dilly Beans Digi Stamps, who are providing the prize.  Great inspiration.
As I had been playing with Alcohol inks in my last post and it was a little addictive... I decided while they were out I would make an ATC! !
I covered a piece of Acetate with cranberry and pitch black and blending solution and with archival ink I stamped a flourish 3 times and wiped the ink away.....I love this and it never ceases to amaze me how the design pops.... then I stamped my flowers and embossed with black, also a little butterfly crept in as well......... where there are flowers there are butterflies......yes!!!!

I mounted this onto silver mirri card and secured with silver brads, the whole ATC has a very metallic look to it and the embossing gives texture, The hardest part was taking a photo!!! I think this is the best one for light here below are couple more I took

Looking more metallic in this one but a bit blurred!

This one shows up the background a bit better ................maybe

Thanks for the challenge
