A Bicycle Greeting

Spent a little time in my Stamp Room this afternoon and created this card using the fun Ink Blowing Technique featured on The Friday Mashup (FM179).  Colors were inspired by Color My Heart Color Dare 112.  Cotton Candy, Pear, and Sorbet reinkers were used for the technique, with a Juniper cardstock base. The Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge was used to  cut a shape for the adorable bicycle image from the new World Traveler stamp set.  Even though I seldom share the inside of my cards, I always decorate them just a bit to coordinate with the front. The inside of this card is completed with a sentiment from the same World Traveler set.  


UPDATE:  this card was chosen as the Ruby Winner for Color Dare 112!  





Just recently, I found the Take Heart challenge blog featuring Close To My Heart products.  Their October Challenge theme is "anything goes" using at least one CTMH product.  Even though it isn't quite October yet, this challenge is open and ready for entries.  

All papers and stamps are from Close To My Heart (CTMH).

  5. Really fun card, Sheila. You've inspired me to try some ink blowing! I also like the inside of the card. I love how you used the grey to make the bike look like a shadow with the message emphasized in front of it. Nice look for the Color Dare!
