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?
