Make it Monday challenge for this week – coloring with white ink. The funny thing to me about the video is that last November, I had an idea for the Made with Snow snowman CAS card on kraft cardstock. I just had to have it, so I bought it off the PTI forum…and have yet to ink it up!! While I could have made a few Xmas cards for this challenge, I didn’t want to seem as if I were copying Heather Nichol’s design. I chose to ink up my Year of Flowers: Mums set instead. This is my favorite of the YOF series I think. It’s just so pretty! I’m really working more towards the CAS style – especially because I never send my cards out. If they’re CAS and can be mailed without having to go to the post office, perhaps more of them will make it out to my friends and family. ??? We shall see! I'm also entering this in the Moxie Fab Challenge: Fanatical about Botanical. What's innovative to me about this card? Coloring with chalk inks!
It needed a little extra something, so I added some white and green embroidery floss tied through the center of a black vintage button. Easy, quick and no bleed through like there would be with my beloved Copics! I can’t wait to try this out with some of the other chalk inks I have and tend to not use (they stain my stamps). Thanks so much for stopping by! I’ll be back tomorrow with a fun little gift set using Perfect Presentation Cute Carton template for Christmas Stampin’ All Year Long! Have a great night! :o) lyss
