Willow, Juniper, and Citrus

I decided to pull out my alcohol inks last night and lined them up in a semi-circle around me. My daughter walked by and said "Got ink?" Which I thought was pretty funny.

I laid them out so I could decide on which colors I wanted to mix together. The willow and juniper was such a beautiful combination I decided to pull them out and lay them down first and the citrus lightened up the combination.

The shape is from the nestabilities label 8 template. I used it for each shape except the sentiment. That is the QuicKutz die.

Everyting was embossed with either a white embossing powder or the Zing Chestnut powder. I added a few highlights with the uni-ball signo white gel pen.
