Monster... Mashup!

It's Friday and time for a new challenge at the Friday Mashup! This week our hostess Avery has a fun technique (Ink Blowing) for us to try and she's Mashing it up with a color challenge too. We're using Bermuda Bay, Crushed Curry & Black. 

I didn't have these colors of Ink Refills in my stash so I used Tempting Turquoise, Daffodil Delight & Black. This was a very fun technique.. there's a link to it on the Friday Mashup blog. I used this week's sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches for my layout

I blew the ink around a piece of Whisper White and then trimmed it to fit my card front and I also created a Tag with some Turquoise ink using the same technique. I added a panel along the edge that was embosses with the Lucky Stars folder. 

I stamped the little Monster and colored them with Copics and cut them out. Head over to the Friday Mashup blog and see what the other Design Team members created with this fun challenge. 

The Freshly Made Sketches challenge is open until Monday @ 12pm PST
