BIC9 - Something special




Isn't this a beautiful canvas Beate has picked for her "Be Inspired" Challenge #9???
When I first saw it I've immediately thought of Wild Wasabi and Gold colors.....

The perfect way to create your own canvas is by using Faith's aka "Markie's Mom" Ink-Spray-Smash technique. If you have not tried this wonderful and little messy method - give it a try and you'll be amazed what you can come up with.....Faith's blog is listed on the right hand side under my favorites!!!


For my card I have used Wild Wasabi, Pumpkin Pie and Cranberry Crisp. I've used my Refill Ink's randomly and drip them on a glossy CS and misted some water on it - smashed them together - voila!!!
I have trimmed mine down to the area that I liked the best and started stamping my new fabulous Cornish Heritage Farms Stamp Set called "Nature Silhouettes" with a Gold Pigment ink and layered it onto a Wild Wasabi CS.

My card measures 5" x 5". I've started with cutting my Transparency Sheet to that size and attached a pierced Whisper White Cardstock behind the front side. I have used Antique Brads from SU to hold the CS into place....Then I've centered my main image onto the front of the Transparency Sheet and finished it off with the fab Satin Chocolate Chip Ribbon holding the Antique Label Holder from SU. The sentiment is also from the CHF Set and I've stamped it in Chocolate Chip.
Hope you like it and don't be shy to play a long!!!

Please make sure you'll visit all the other wonderful ladies from the Inspiration Team which can be found on the right hand side of my blog. Have a great day!!! ~TFL~
