Stampin with the Dragon - You got ink

Over at Stampin with the Dragon the challenge this week is - You got ink . To use ink somewhere on your project.

Hmmm well ive never tried colouring using inks. So i decided that i would use another 'thingy' that i did for a recent ATC swap. I say thingy as im not sure if its even a technique LOL.. ( Ooooh i might of invented a new one LOL)

I have an ink pad thats 4 different colours but never quite know what to do with it !! So i took a baby wipe and the ink pad and swished it all over ;O) I like to call it ink swishing haha. It has the added joy that theres nothing to clean afterwards as you just throw the baby wipe away ;O) Now thats my kind of crafting.....

The image that ive used if from Stitchy Stamps and yes its my favorite 'Sparkles ' again ;O) This time shes wearing bright colours that matched the ink swished card blank. Sparkles is available to buy and shes so versitile and sooooo darling. I love her !! I mounted the image on some red card that i had left over from another project.

To finish my card off i added a few flowers and leaves in the same colours and a few pearls. Not forgetting abit of bling :O)

Choccy xx
I would also like to enter my card into the following challenges :
Tuesday Throwdown. Week # 21. 3 of something (flowers)
Create4fun. Week 41. Use a digi
Papertake. 3 of a kind (flowers)
Craftalicious. Challenge 10. Anything goes

fantastic, great work with the baby wipe

Thats gorgeous - how did you manage to get the seperate colours (IYKWIM) like the orange, yellow and green - I have seen those multi coloured pads but would worry that mine would end up looking a sludge colour - if I just 'swished' them all - lol x
