sfytt060510today i am sharing my Think Ink challenge card with you using Artful INKables stamps!  The challenge is to go outside of the box and do something new.  so i did the collage tutorial from the artful inkables blog from last week.

i also used the SFYTT sketch and the SCS color challenge – Ruby red, Cameo Coral & Tempting Turquoise.

I used stamps from 3 different Artful Inkables sets: In My Garden, Bugs & Blossoms Mandalas, & Fanciful Flowers.  i also used 4 different shades of inks from versamagic, brilliance and memento – LOVE having all of those little dew drops handy!

the trim across the top is from Webster’s Pages – pretty cool huh?!?!  i finished it off with a flower i crocheted myself and some of my exclusive glittered skittles.  What do you think??  This was a fun technique!  quick and easy too!

and now pezzy and i are off to walmart – think they will have any of those LITE carts?  i have 9 more on my wish list! *SCREECH*  that will take awhile to collect 😛  maybe i can sneak one into the cart each week when i go grocery shopping…

see ya tomorrow!!!

better blog siggy
