a2z Scrapbooking

I posted over at a2z Scrapbooking. This card would work for this month's challenge

Here's the card

I was testing out a new technique - alcohol ink on vellum. I tried heat embossing on the reverse side. I didn't like how muted the colour was. So, I tried again, this  time embossing on the alcohol ink side - much better. The colour was more vibrant. It was the look I was going for, for this card.

I used Hero Arts K6214 Artistic Dahlia. I fussy cut the flowers out - removing the leaves (which of course, were red!) I hand cut leaves from a grey/green cardstock. It felt that I needed to do a bit more to add a bit of interest. So, I embossed using a vertical stripes embossing folder. The sentiment is from Hero Arts CM124 Color Layering Fuchsia.
