Technique Junkies – Thankful Swirls

The Crafty Nurse here with more inspiration from Technique Junkies.

Today, I used “Layered Swirls”  as a background for my die cut leaves which I heat embossed in gold.  The sentiment is from “Typewriter Set” and find it a perfect saying for someone weathering a storm, which to me this card represents. The background is Alcohol Ink on Yupo which I spritzed again with 91% Alcohol for that spread out splottchy effect.  I cut out the cardbase using a Simon Says Stamp die. I distressed and added twine to finish.

Happy Crafting!

  2. From one crafty nurse to another–this is gorgeous! One day I’m going to have to try the Yupo!


    • Thanks Greta – I love it. Moves so interestingly and if you don’t like it – you wipe it away with blending solution and start again. Thank you for your comment.


I'd love to hear what you have to say!
