Amazing.....

Playing with my Alcohol inks again....
I think they are amazing and you just never know what you are going to get....
I mixed colours that where adjacent on the colour wheel.
I really didn't want to cut into it but I did!
This is my card.....

I layered up the square link die several times in white and gold
and off set the last layer very slightly to show the hint of gold.
I wasn't keen on the white or gold framing, as it detracted from 
the Alcohol ink colours, 
so that's why I finished with the frame that I did.
The sentiment is die cut in gold and white linen 
and the 'Love is' stamped and heat embossed in gold.

My colour inspiration is from Less is More Challenge... Colour Challenge
I shall be linking my card up to their fun challenge.
Use three adjacent colours on the Colour wheel
They are also celebrating their 6th birthday....
So......... Happy Birthday x
Thank you for all your inspiration x

I think the colours I've used are very passionate so I will be joining the challenge 
and
Memory Box - It's All About Love
The Square links Die is Memory Box
and
Thank you for finding time to stop by.

Thrilled to have received a showcase from Less is more
and
A Cutplorations winner with this card...Thank you so much x
