With Thoughts of You

2 Challenges:
I created the background paper on glossy card stock with dye reinkers, and guess what I discovered I forgot to write down the colors. I did a couple of test pieces to see if I could remember, but the closest I got was Baja Breeze and Kiwi Kiss, couldn't recreate the pink. This technique is called Ink, Spritz, Smash. I did those things and even dragged a little. Each piece of paper you make using this technique comes out different. You get lots of inky fingers if you're messy like me.
I'm so glad Linda, The Funkie Junkie kept inspiring me til I pulled out my sewing machine because I don't think this card would have been as striking without the sewing.
 Supplies: Black Card Blank 5" X 6 1/2" Halcraft, Papers: Stampin Up-glossy card stock, Very Vanilla, Old Olive, Basic Grey-Scarlet's Letter, Stamp: Inkadinkado-98841 Fancy That, Ink: Ranger Archival Ink-Jet Black, Stampin Up-Cherry Cobbler, Flower brad and parts-Oriental Trading Co. and Stampin Up-filigre brads, ribbon-Michael's, sewing machine, glue dots, pop dots.

Thanks for viewing,
