Alcohol ink on glossy cardstock

I really like the look of white embossing over alcohol ink, but I wanted to try making a card with some more white space (love my white space!). So this background was done on glossy cardstock, not Yupo - one reason is that Yupo warps when you heat emboss (it can be done, but you have to be VERY careful!), and also I wasn't sure how I would go stamping the sentiment on Yupo. So I went with glossy cardstock. 
I used a floral stamp from Penny Black, and a sentiment from Clearly Besotted. I stamped the sentiment in Versafine onyx black, and I embossed it with clear embossing powder.
 Thanks for visiting :)

  5. Beautiful! Going to give the heat embossing on the alcohol inks a try. Glad you said the Yupo paper warps. Need to find some glossy cardstock. What type do you use?

  6. I instantly recognize your work by the use of white space!! I love it too. It really takes a great deal of experience, restraint and good judgement to reach a nice balance of white space vs color. You are the master!! I'd love to read more about your techniques for achieving this balanced look. I thoroughly enjoy your cards. I've poured over your blog all the way to the very beginning. You are the single biggest influence and inspiration for my own cards. Thanks a million!! Paloma Greenwald
