For the last Unity ATC exchange, I had a fun time creating using alcohol inks and Distress inks.

  For the ATC n the left, I made a 'masterboard' using the entire 8 1/2" x 11" sheet of cardstock. I sponged on a variety of Distress inks in fall colors, added stamping and dabbed some brown on bubble wrap, then added some gold embossing.  I decided to add gold embossing around the edges of the ATC as well.  The sunflower set was a freebie from Unity last year , it included this sentiment.  I added the sentiment on vellum.

 For the ATC on the right, my goal was to try the Alcohol lift ink.  I dabbed on Copic reinkers onto white glossy cardstock, as they are Alcohol Inks- and I like the soft pretty lighter colors.  The lift technique did not work, so I just used the backgrounds anyway.  I made another sheet using yellows, then stamped on the flowers and the butterflies.  The sentiment was in a grab bag from Unity : )

I wish you a fantastic weekend!

Thanks for stopping by!
