Wish Big Splash

Birthday Sundaes     Challenge #45-Get Messy Birthday Card (use some inks)
Try Stampin' On Tuesday     Challenge #55-Sketch

I finally got my hands on some bright alcohol inks, so for this messy something birthday card I uses the alcohol ink technique where you drop a drop and either use a can of air to move it quickly or if you cheap like me you keep a straw in you mouth and when you drop the drop you blow hard. Yep, that's right, I'm a blow hard, but you already knew that because I clap myself. ;-)
I love the big splashes this creates, and even though I just used Watermelon, Citrus, and Sail Boat Blue where the colors mingle you get some mixing. The two funky colored dots in the corner don't match too many things, but were perfect for this card.

Happy Creating--
