Essentials By Ellen December Pin-Sights Challenge

Today I have a card to share for this month's

I love all of the beautiful red!
Here's my card:

I started by stamping the images from my Essentials by Ellen Mondo Peony stamp set
Strathmore watercolour paper and heat embossing it in clear.
I coloured them in using my Zig Clean Colour Brush Markers and a Ranger Tim Holtz Water Brush.

I stamped my sentiment (from Simon Says Stamps' Big Scripty Sentiments)
in Altenew Jet Black Ink, which is just as fabulous as all of the other Altenew inks.
I didn't order it originally, because I love my Versafine onyx black ink,
but finally decided to try it -- and am kicking myself for not getting it sooner.
I will use this ink all of the time now, and save my Versafine onyx black ink for embossing.

Thanks for looking!
