Congrats card...Ismaki challenge

This is my first Ismaki challenge! The sketch is at the bottom of this post.

Here's my interpretation. This card will be going to an artist friend
who'll preside over the opening of her solo art show this Friday.



Background is done with Ecoline inks (# 361 Light Rose and 522 Turquoise Green). I mixed each ink in Ranger Mini Misters with a couple of drops of Winsor and Newton Iridescent Medium, and sprayed on glossy cardstock. Once that was done, I lifted it with tweezers and gently moved it around to encourage the inks to move. They create such wonderful patterns. Paste embossing done with Dreamweaver stencil and black matte paste. I attached the paste-embossed heart by sewing seed beads in the four corners, and also sewed them down each side of the base layer. I've learned to LOVE the Ecoline inks. It was very difficult to find them in North America. The Dreamweaver supplies and inks are available at the Canadian Quietfire Design shop.
I appreciate your visit to my blog!
