- Sugar and Spice Lite - wagon
- B is for Boy Lite - all the toys
For those of you who have been following me, you know that I started a recent love affair with the Tim Hotlz inks. They are amazing and here is yet another reason why. I made the background paper!!!!! Yeah, uh! I'm stepping up my game. I wanted to use the TH inks but my eBay order had not come in with all my differnt shades of blue. So I only had Broken China in the reinker on hand. I knew that you could spray a craft mat with water was one way to use his ink pads so I decided to do that with the reinker and see what happened. I dropped a few drops of ink on the mat, sprayed it and swirled it around with the tip of a paint brush. I then dipped my white cardstock in it and turned it over. By the look in my eyes you would have thought I had found Fort Knox (or won a golden Cricut!). I repeated this step a couple of times and the results are what you see. I am very pleased with this technique and will be doing it again. I am going to make a post with pics for this technique by the end of this week.
I put pop dots on the wagon and put it on the card. I then glued the toys to the card, making sure to put some of it below the line of the wagon so they look like they are "in" the wagon. I was going to put a title on there but when I finished, I thought it was perfect the way it was.
I don't think I could be happier with this card than I already am, especially since boy and guy cards are so hard for me. TFL!!!
