Lil' Inkers August Release - Day 1


The fun begins today with the first of three days of blog hops for the Lil' Inkers July release.  All of the new, amazing products are available NOW in the Lil' Inker StoreYou must check it out, this release is a bit spooky! 

You should have arrived here from Mary Dawn Quirindongo's Blog.  If not, head to the Lil' Inker Store Blog to start from the beginning.

My card today features the Classic Halloween stamp set.



I went with a graphic design, one that would let this sentiment really stand out.


I started by painting with Dandelion and Morocco irRESISTible ink directly on my card stock.  This paint dries with a bit of texture which is really cool!  Once dy, I heat embossed the sentiment over the paint.  I stamped some bats and spider webs from the bottom right, to the top left to add movement to the design.  Splattered ink, a sprinkling of sequins and a bow tied with Tuxedo Black Timeless Twine finish off this card perfectly!

Time to keep hopping along now.  Next up is Sarah Jay, so head over to her blog because you know she'll have something AMAZING to show you.  Make sure to leave comments along the way too, because Laura is giving away 3 - $15 Store Credits!

Have fun hopping & shopping!  See you tomorrow!

Love actual paint on a card! I was just perusing cards yesterday and wondering why people bought stamp sets that look like brushstrokes when you could just paint right on your card. Ha!
