Make it Monday, #114

Dawn McVey, at Papertrey Ink, has challenged us this week to use our re-inkers and blow the ink with a straw. Well, since I have only a few re-inkers, I decided to improvise... I used 3 Perfect Pearls mixtures, and dropped them onto my Smokey Black cardstock, one at a time, then blew like mad through a small straw. (I haven't done this technique since elementary school!)
Thanks for looking!
Supplies are all PTI, unless otherwise noted.
Stamps: Happiness in Bloom, Sketched Shapes
Paper: Raspberry Fizz, Smokey Shadow, blue scrap for "flag"
Inks: Raspberry Fizz, Smokey Shadow, Pearlescent Lavender (Brilliance) on the flag
Dies: Limitless Layers:Ovals, Sketched Shapes
Other: Perfect Pearls: Berry Twist, Perfect Pearl, Heirloom Gold
I am also entering this card in this week's Simon Says Stamp challenge: Anything Goes


  1. Very striking color combo, Kathryn. Your blown ink design is very festive and looks like streamers coming from the sentiment :)

  2. The perfect pearls look great against the dark cardstock - I agree that they look like streamers!

  3. Love the shimmery effect on the dark cardstock :)
