Ink Spray and Smash!

I love this technique! The other day was my boss' birthday and we bought her a Vera Bradley Garment Bag so I put together a card to match the colors in the pattern. This is such an easy technique to use, just drops of reinker, spraying water and smooshing between two pieces of glossy cardstock.

Here is the inside....I have to pull out the set to see which set I used for the sentiment.

The flowers are from the Stitched Exotics set.

Sorry for the short post, but I have a very very very very bad sinus headache (you know, the kind where your eyelashes hurt?) Have a great night!

This is so cool! I love the technique and the matching flowers. Very pretty card. I hope you are feeling better by the time you read this.

Wow!! That is a great technique, and yet another one that I haven't tried. I love the look. This is a beautiful card! What a stunner!! I hope you are feeling better soon. I know how you feel. I've been fighting sinus problems and allergies since the trees started budding. It will thankfully be over soon, and so hopefully will my sinus ailments. Take care, rest, and feel better my friend!!

This is truly lovely - I have heard of this technique but haven't tried it yet and yes, Vera all the way! It's spot on! Feel better soon!

Beautifully done. The background is lovely and those flowers are perfect. I'm going to have to give this a try myself.
