  4. OMGosh Nancy the result you got with your alcohol inks is breathtaking. Love the stitched die and how you popped your snow white trees on top. Nice sentiment font and that teeny snowflake with bling.

  5. Brrrr I can feel the cold with that stunning AI acetate tissue background. Exceptional is the word that comes to mind. Love the white winter tree setting, just a beautiful composition. Merry Christmas dear friend, xxx

  6. WOW...this is SOOOO beautiful Nancy! Guess I've had my head in the sand because I've never heard of using Al inks on acetate, but you can believe I'm definitely going to try that out!! Is the tissue paper behind the acetate colored or plain white, and is it smooth or wrinkled up first? Your background is just stunning and the simple tree die cut looks just lovely against it! Beautiful, beautiful card!! :0)

    1. Thanks Marcia. I used scrunched white tissue paper. I just added a link to Loll's tissue paper video and a link to my 1st card using the same technique as I used on this card except different colors and I stamped on the acetate. Hope this helps. I know you would LOVE this technique. Be prepared to make several backgrounds. I usually end up with 8 or 12 :-) Hugs...

  10. Fabulous AI on acetate with tissue Paper background, Nancy! I love it! I especially love the vibrant and rich shades of green! You look at the card for a while and feel like you're drawn into the Emerald World. The fir trees and everything else being white enhances the beauty of the background. Hugs.. Hideko
