Cheap Embellishments

Today's card is an example of  "thinking of you" cards that recently I have been making and sending to friends facing difficulties. The flourishes and sentiment are clear embossed after which I used alcohol ink to create the background. No big deal, we all do it but, did you know that if you use 3D fabric paint, which is readily available at most craft stores and sells for a little over a dollar, you can make your own embellishments? To get rid of the point, gently tap the underside of the card and the result is smooth rounded dots.
