Alphabet Challenge - I for Ink It Up!

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

The weekend is nearly here. I am off to a crafty workshop with my friend tomorrow, I am really looking forward to it.

It is time for the new challenge on the Alphabet Challenge Blog the letter is I for Ink it Up. Here is my card I was rather pleased with this one.


To create the background I used a technique that John Lockwood demoed with Pixie Powders. I used my Brushos which I think behave the same but they are not sparkly. I sprinkled three shades of the Brushos  powders onto my craft mat, you don't need much, then I sprayed the powders with water. I used a lot of water as I wanted the colours to be a bit more subtle. In my hand I held background stamp Spring Trail by Creative Expressions and I stamped with the Brusho all over some water colour card. I left it to dry before I moved on to the next bit. 


Last time I went into town I treated myself to a new stamp by Woodware it is called Going to Seed. It was stamped with black archival and heat embossed with a clear powder. I think it shows up really well against the background. 


The sentiment came in the the same stamp set. 


That is all from me today. I hope that you have a wonderful day. 

Thank you for all your visits and comments I do appreciate them all. 


Happy Crafting.

Hugs Jackie
