Beautiful Flowers and Alcohol Inks with a Blind-Embossed Background

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.
