Topic: Dry Embossing
I used my hand cut brass stencil in the Cuttlebug to emboss on this metallic silver paper. After cutting around it I used two tones of pink alcohol ink on a felt pad to add interest. The background is a printed cardstock from a small pad of them and I liked the asian feel that it added to the Kanji.
I tied a thin ribbon at the spine of the folded card base and hand lettered the text. "Good Fortune and Happiness" are the two meanings for the character.
Here you can see the effect of the alcohol inks.
