HELLO crafty friends and a very happy Friday to you all.   I hope you had a wonderful week and have some crafty plans for the up coming weekend.   For today’s post, I am sharing this awesome technique card inspired by the designers at ssinkspiration.blogspot.com I was super lucky enough to be chosen as a winner at the Stylin Stampin Inkspiration last challenge!    If your interested in seeing that card you can check that out HERE  What a wonderful time I had experimenting and exploring this technique.   Check this out:

Ink, Spray & Smash

This technique made me feel a bit like a kid again!   Drip, spray, smash & smoosh and viola!   The glossy cardstock and this technique was a match made in heaven!  I tried many different color combinations, but my favorite was the cucumber crush and lemon lime twist combo.    Once the paper was completely dry, I then ran it through the new 3D dynamic textured impressions embossing folder – Layered Leaves.

Ink, spray, smash technique on glossy cardstock in cucumber crush and lemon lime twist ink background with copper foil Oh so Eclectic flowers and leaves. Featured sentiment in black "hope"

Hope is a beautiful thing

The flowers were cut with copper foil paper using the new Oh so Eclectic bundle and the card was finished off using Sunshine Wishes thinlits!    I truly hope you enjoyed stopping by today and perhaps this card brought a smile to your face!   Hope is a beautiful thing!   Have a great weekend.
