Beautiful Flowers and Alcohol Inks with a Blind-Embossed Background

Hi Crafty Friends,

I have lots to share with you in this video. The beautiful cluster of flowers in Altenew’s Charmed stamp set is the star of the show. The flowers were embossed and painted with alcohol inks for a fun and vibrant way to show them off. Then to kick it up a notch, I created a simple yet stylish blind-embossed background. Here is a video to take you through the steps.
