Blogger's Challenge #116: Thinking of You!

Our theme this week was Thinking of You. I made this card by embossing the butterfly and flower images using my versamark pad and white embossing powder. Then, I used the reinker splash technique to add the various colors of blue. With that tech, you spray the entire piece with water and drop small amounts of reinker onto the wet surface. It's unpredictable as you don't know where that water will take the color but what an adventure!



Thanks for looking and be sure to check out what the other members did while Thinking of You!
