Happy Monday!!!

Always a busy day for me.....just had a chance to make this card for today's TLC #155.

Faith Hofrichter aka "markie's mom" on SCS is hosting this challenge and she came up with this technique a couple of years ago. It's called Ink-Spray & Smash - doesn't that sound like fun???
By the way - I absolutely love Faith's creations!!!

I have been meaning to try this technique for a long time, but I always get today is the perfect day.

Do not ask me why I choose the colors that I have clue they just fell in to my hands - LOL!!!
No - that's not quite true - I wanted to create something bold, but yet with a soft touch...and I came up with Yoyo Yellow and Pretty in Pink.

Step number one was that - I followed Faith's Ink-Spray & Smash tutorial she has listed on her blog . I used Glossy CS for this and I had to let it dry for a couple of minutes before I layered it onto Basic Black CS. The base of my card is Yoyo Yellow. The pretty hearts are from the new "Always" Stamps Set and I stamped them with Basic Black Ink straight onto the blended Cardstock. I did the same with the sentiment and as you can see I dotted around the black rim of the individual pieces...I got that idea also from Faith!!! I guess it was a Faith's kinda project....-LOL!!!

Hope you had a chance to play too??? Don't forget tomorrow I'll pick a WINNER.....for my Blog Candy!!!
