Make it Monday#140

Make it Monday is basically a direct to paper technique, where you smear the ink on paper, without dirtying up your stamps, hahaha....

Ashley Newell shows you how to do that in a video.

Simple and quick - my kind of schtuff....

I needed a masculine birthday card for a friend of mine - so I picked a masculine(?) color scheme, smeared the ink on white cardstock, which I had embossed with the PTI numbers embossing plate. 


The little numbers and the sentiment arealso PTI (Global Greetings)


The possibilities are endless - can think of lots of color schemes here. 

I am also linking this card with Seize the Birthday - the theme is texture - love it, when things just fall into place...
And with Simon Says Monday challenge - got ink
