I cannot go live with this post until Beth gets her card, so you are probably reading this a little AFTER her big day, Cinco De Mayo, lol. Just extending that birthday celebration!
Did I tell you how much I am loving the Dream Pop Papers? Here is just one reason why!
I made this card with a chalkboard look. I adore that type of style right now, so hope to try it a lot more in the near future. I used this sentiment from the Joyful Birthday My Acrylix and a flourish from the Love Life My Acrylix.
It is pretty easy to achieve this look, actually, just use White Daisy Pigment Ink on the Black Cardstock. The tricky part comes while you are trying to let it dry! Don't touch it or it will look like a hastily erased chalkboard! ;)
I also just had to use the dark inking idea that my upline, Mandy Leahy, used in her Blog Hop project last week that you can see HERE. I LOVE this look! Best of all, it meant I got to use my favorite CTMH tool! Know what it is yet?
The Just for You My Acrylix worked beautifully for making this flower with Dream Pop paper. It is truly one of my favorite stamps. I cut out the petals and inked each one with my #1 Fave Close to My Heart Tool.........a Sponge Dauber!
Here is one of mine in action on a recent project (go figure!) It came in super-handy to ink up these letters. :)
I store them in a handy dandy little case that I found online. One for each CTMH color! :)
I hope that Beth had a fabulous time extending her birthday a bit for my post! Happy, happy, birthday!!! If you want to find out how you can get your hands on the amazing Dream Pop paper, click HERE! It is only available THIS MONTH!
