"Inky Fingers" CTMH Technique Blog Hop

Welcome to our Blog Hop where our artwork is focused on the theme of "Inky Fingers". Participants were asked to focus their attention on any inks carried by Close To My Heart. I am confident you will find some fun artwork as you make your way around the Blog Hop.

If you are coming from Maz's Blog, you are on the right track. You can find a complete list of participants at the bottom of this post.

This card is a result of my first attempt at Oxide inks. I wasn't sure of my blending effort, when just looking at the paper. Truthfully, it looked like a big mess. LOL But then I sprayed it a little bit with water and it began to take on a new look. It's amazing what a little spritz of water will do. 

I then stamped the image, with Archival Black Ink - after it was completely dry, and then fussy-cut around the image. 

You can see a close-up of the additional elements I included. The paper is from our Mix-Ins and I added some Silver Thread and Silver Glitter Gems.
The silver polka dotted paper, which I love, is from the Silver Foil Patterns paper pack. The photo in the Idea Book does not do it justice. It's absolutely beautiful with the different patterns they have incorporated. (We have a Gold pack as well.)
