Fantasy Film Embellished Valentines

In February, I will do a demonstration and lead a play time with a couple of Fantasy Film techniques. Thought it appropriate to make my cards for the monthly swap with some embellishments made out of Fantasy Film. Inked a butterfly stamp with red StazOn ink, layered on two pieces of light Fantasy Film, covered with parchment paper and heat with a hot iron. I used some extra bits to do the same with small hearts.
I saw some gorgeous ATCs made with alcohol backgrounds on Fiona's blog, and decided to something similar for my cards. I dropped 3 pink alcohol inks on a craft sheet and dropped on a piece of glossy card stock, swirled it around and picked it up. Each background looks different depending on how much ink I used, how much swirling around I did, etc. I forgot that Fiona added blending solution to her alcohol inks on the craft sheet, so I probably used up more alcohol ink than I needed to. Next, I stamped a swirly image on the background with embossing ink, covered with white embossing powder and heat set.
Layered the alcohol background on white card stock, and added a torn "romantic" black and white tissue paper piece. Folded the wings up on the Fantasy Film butterfly and glued to the card by just the body section. Added some red thread and 3 mini Fantasy Film hearts.
