An Inkling for a Challenge

Today's Ways To Use It challenge was all about ink. We were not allowed to use black, white, or brown ink on our project. Yikes?! That's a tough one for me!

The roses were stamped with ruby ink and colored with watercolor crayons. The leaves were stamped with olive ink and colored the same way. An Aquapainter was used to manipulate the crayon color. The large background was embossed with a Cuttlebug folder which was inked with the ruby ink.

Card Recipe -

Stamps: Roses to Die for (Clear Dollar Stamps)
Paper: Paper - white, blue, dp
Ink: Ink - Ruby, Olive
Accessories: watercolor crayons, aquapainter, Crackle Accents, sanding block, lace, ribbon, pearls, pop dots, corner rounder, Cuttlebug, folder

I'd love to hear your thoughts on my challenge card. I, also, challenge you to try it yourself. It's fun, and it helps you use things that you may have forgotten you have.

Fun stuff coming next week, so check back often. Have an awesome night and a great, big, beautiful tomorrow!!
