I -- is for Ink It Up

Hi, thanks for your visit, I do love to have visitors.
Today is the beginning of the Alphabet Challenge.
It was my turn to choose the theme for the letter I - 
I love getting messy and making backgrounds so, I chose
I ---- is for Ink It Up.
The DT have had a wonderful time so please do take a peek.
For my card. I used a white scallop edge card. Placed on a black mat.
My designer piece was created by patting  3 x DI onto my craft mat,
spraying water and dipping my card into the inky mess.
I then used an inky spray from The Stampman called 
Desert Moon Tumbleweed Sage which gives it a super shiny glow. 
The stamps are by Sheena Douglass - Rock n Roll. 
Some of the smaller stamps are from Crafter's Companion 
- Just For Men stamp Set.

Challenge # 25 Pink and Brown

Hi thanks for visiting my blog. I do appreciate you taking the time. 
Today we start Challenge # 25 at Cardz 4 Galz - which is 
Pink and Brown
I do like the colour challenges, I hope you too will enjoy this.
The DT have had a ball playing with pretty pink, why don't you pop to see them?
I started with a Kraft card.  With Picked Raspberry, I stamped a rose stamp
by Sheena Douglass from Creative Expressions around the edges of the card.
From my stash I found the gorgeous Santoro Mirabelle topper. 
I cut it down, placed on a pink piece of card, then onto brown card.
All tied off with some pretty organza pink ribbon. 
The sentiment is a stamp from Hobbycraft.
