Gorgeous Flowers

This was my card for my Downline Swap.  Again, the "rules" were to use Wisteria Wonder, Pool Party, and Crushed Curry.  I am ABSOLUTELY IN LOVE with Gorgeous Grunge so I am always looking for ways to use it!

Splatter Birthday

Sorry my posting has dropped off.  I started up the Fall semester with two grad course at FGCU on top of working full time.  I am starting to get into the swing of things so lets see if I can get back on track. 

This card is a swap from convention.  Sadly I don't have the creators name :(  This technique is a lot of fun but don't do too many at once our you'll pass out!  Start by point two or three drops of one color reinker in the middle of the card.  Using a straw, blow the ink toward the edge.  Repeat with three more colors!  Here are some tips: 
  • Keep the drops centered and then put a label over the mess you make (and you do make a mess :)
  • Have your cardstock bigger than what you want as a finished product and then trim down each of the four sides once dry.  Sometimes the ink pools at the end and it look a little messy, this way you cut it off!
  • Let each color have a minute to dry before starting the next color just in case you have overlap. (like I did with the Marina Mist and Calypso Coral)
  • Careful not to spit down your straw!  (yew grossness!)
  • Watch your work space, I got carried away and blew ink on another card :(
  • Have FUN!
