STAMPlorations Monthly Challenge 15

Hello my friends, 

the New Year has started and we have an exciting new challenge for you, here at STAMPlorations! the theme is:

What do you think of that? Don't we always use inks when we are stamping - there is no other way....so that got me thinking to do something different. and here is my take on it:

For this card I played with alcohol INKS, have ing them drip down on glossy card stock (by Ranger). The ink kind of seeps into the paper giving you those fuzzy margins (not happy about this, but nothing I can do about it....) - I wanted clean margins. Guess I have to hunt for different paper....but regardless I loved the way this turned out. 

Added some black strips on the side and the wonderful sentiment is by STAMPlorations -Subway Art Builders: Create. The pink twine of the side does not look quite as pink in real life - it is closer to the alcohol ink color...

For my second card I used  VIGNETTE: Eat Drink Be MerryBloom Sketches: Sunflower ArtsySentiment Builders: Christmas & New Year, stamped over splats of neon colors.

The challenge ends January 31, the winner will be announced February 2.

and now for the prizes: the
will get 2 stamp sets if she used our stamps, 1 stamp set if she didn't and gets a
guest designer spot in the upcoming monthly Challenge
