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  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 in depth tutorial plus craft-along video here on the STAMPlorations Blog.

Hope you enjoyed today’s inspiration.

Back soon … until then

Happy Crafting 🙂
