Splashing about with Ink

Hello Everybody,

Just a quick post today. I have been playing about with ink … again!

At the moment I seem to be in a pink & yellow phase, well at least that seems to be true for three of the cards I want to share with you today.

First up a couple of cards I made today …

friends eat cake

This was such a speedy and fun card to make … a bit of stamping, masking, blending and splashing/spraying and you’re done. I thought about adding gems, sequins or pearls, but it somehow seemed to start fighting with the cake hence I decided against it and simply added some glitter instead.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Inkspirational – Splash

Case this sketch ย I turned it upside down

Next up is another card I made today …

celebrate you

This time I used a mix of pink and blue, some stenciling, stamping and punching and you’re done.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Addicted to CAS – celebrate

House of Cards – Add a Bow

CASology – Run

Time Out – Photo Inspiration, I went with the chevron/arrow theme and overall graphic feel of the image below

Next up are a couple of projects I made for my STAMPlorations Spotlight Post which went live today …

Shrink Plastic Liliy

There are detailed instructions on how to make this card plus a craft-along video tutorial on here the STAMPlorations Blog.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Inspirational – Splash, there are some very visible splashes in the background

Case this Sketch – same sketch as above for my first card, I have taken some liberties with it, but I hope it will still qualify

… and now to my last card …

hello Lily

Again there is an inย depth tutorial plus craft-along video here on the STAMPlorations Blog.

Hope you enjoyed today’s inspiration.

Thanks for popping by and leaving such lovely comments, they are all very much appreciated.

Back soon … until then

Happy Crafting ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Gosh Monika, what a stunning collection of cards. I love the way you have highlighted the ‘you’ in the second card and I think the the 3rd one is stunning , I just purchased the boxed blooms and am going to watch the video to see how you did this, and I must pin a couple of these. Thanks for joining ATCAS and Ink

  4. Oh and thanks for joining TIME OUT, great to see you here. Can’t seem to pin your card, might have to just do it from your whole blog. Do you have the pin function on your blog, as it doesn’t seem to work from my ipad, will try from my laptop later x
