Hi all - such a blistery day out there!  Brrrrrr - oh so cold!!  Perfect day to stay inside and perhaps, craft??

I inked up some new (to me) stamps and created this card.  Speaking of 'inking' can you tell that my sentiment nearly ruined my card with ink blots everywhere??  I obviously over inked the stamp and applied too much pressure while stamping - yikers!  Unlike myself, I took it stride and added lil "blots" everywhere with a pin and ink. 

In the end I am happy I didn't crumple it up into a ball and throw it in the trash (which is quite like myself) ;)

Card Ingredients:
Stamps: Simon Says Stamp! Cupcake Party and Flower Friend
Inks: Memento Rhubarb Stalk, Gray Flannel, and Potter's Clay, Versafine Onyx Black
Cardstock: Bazzill, Recollections
Bits/Bobs: We R Memory Keepers twine
Tools: Fiskars paper crimper, Star Nesties


I created this card for the following challenges:  Curtain Call - "smitten", I was inspired by the colours but without the pink in the mitten because I didn't want this card too girly;  Fusion - I was inspired by the sketch



Well that is it for me - stay warm out there!  Cheers!

Very cute card! You cannot even tell at all you *almost* ruined it! What a genius idea to dab ink with a pin...so simple but yet I don't think I would have ever came up with that. I might even try it on a card just for fun! Thanks for playing along with us at fusion! :)

I am so glad you didn't crumple it up either! Great save! You shouldn't have told anyone, I would never have known those little dots weren't in your plan all along! I love the corrugated background...really adds such great texture to your design.
