Say Cheese!

I wasn't going to join in with Unity's Friends With Flair this week since we've got family in town, but at the last minute, I decided to whip up a card. I've been so inspired by how my blogging buddy Lynnda Hosni splatters and inks her scrapbook backgrounds--so chic! Here's my take on splatter inking:



I carefully inked the glasses from the One of a Kind (my fave Unity set). If you've seen this stamp, there is text very above and below the glasses. I tried masking, but couldn't get a full impression of the glasses, so instead I used a brush pen. It worked great! I splattered the Distress ink after stamping the glasses, which produced a cool water-spotted effect on the glasses:


Yes, the glasses are distressed...I'm not that bad of a stamper--LOL! The sentiment is from Samantha Walker's Retro Road Trip. I did make a boo-boo and cut a little too much off the bottom when I was done. [The paper cutter is in time-out right now.]

Anyhoo, I also wanted to let you know that I'm going to give some birthday blog candy over the next few weeks. To enter, just: 1) follow me on Google (click on the "Join This Site" to the right) and 2) leave a comment. The more comments over the next few weeks, the more entries you'll receive. I'll be drawing on Sept. 3rd. Want to see some of the blog candy?



Thanks for all of your super sweet comments this week! It means so much to me! Have a great weekend.

  36. I love the water-splotched effect the splatter had on the glasses - did you realize it would do that, or was it one of those happy crafty accidents (unlike the naughty paper cutter?)
    I want to try that splattering now, but I wonder if I'll get brave enough?
    And, um, holy awesome blog candy :) Woohoo!
