Opalite ink birthday

I am so missing my camera! This card is much crisper than it appears here, but our scanner does not do very well with embossed images or embellishments. :-(

I love opalite inks! They are so much fun to work with, especially the re-inkers. Stamping straight onto (dark) cardstock does not always give a visible image, but used on glossy (you'll need to emboss - it won't dry otherwise) you will usually have success. However, as I did with this card, sponging onto an embossed image shows the colors well. The only problem with doing this is that the embossing does not react well to the opalite inks; it actually will disolve a bit. So, try not to touch the embossed image with ink any more than you have to.
