Today's Lesson From The Craft Room: A New Supply or A New Technique Might Be Just What You Need For New Inspiration!

Today I rewarded myself with a trip to Hobby Lobby (yes, I deserved it!) and purchased alcohol inks - something I had been wanting for awhile. They really inspired me and when I saw today's color challenge I put the new inks to good use!

I pounced, blended and pounced again with the alcohol inks on glossy paper. Then I ran that paper through the bigz butterfly die. I put 2 smaller pieces of pretty in pink card stock through the top note die to create the "sides" of the card. I stamped the background with an image from Kindred Spirits. I then took some white organza ribbon and ran it across the really rust ink pad and poof - some really rust ribbon appeared :)

Hope you like the card - I had a really fun time with the new products and this whacky color combo!
