Hey there everyone! How are you?? So......what do you think?? You know me, always trying to change it up a bit! Hehehe! So, I saw this Tim Holtz tutorial, about Adirondack Alcohol inks and here we are!! I love that part of it. However, I am not completely sold on the embossing. I am not sure if the base was an issue or the user! Haha! Well, I'd like to think it was the paper, but, I am thinking it WAS me! Although, I do believe the sentiment WAS the base paper. I had applied some of the Adirondack Gold metal ink; I think it kept the Versafine Onyx from being blacker, if that's a word! Haha! I tried to emboss that part too, but, it didn't look very nice! So, we did it again and left it, as is! Haha! Overall, I THINK I like it; just wish the embossing would have been a little better. To be honest, it looks way better in person! Oh well! I do LOVE these Unity stamps though, don't you?? I think I am getting back into the swing of things now. I think my family is getting well, for the most part, I think School issues are at a stand still, and hopefully we won't have any funerals for A LONG WHILE! All there is to do then is...........move forward!! Hope you all are having a FANTASTIC weekend!!Tha nk you so much for all your kind word and for stopping by! I'll be back tomorrow to visit!! Until then.....................ENJOY LIFE!!!!

Hey so glad to hear things are going better! I hope things continue on a good path! I love this card. I tried the alcohol inks once, but the outcome was not pretty. Yours on the other hand is great!
