Saturday Inspiration

Today I used my new Adirondack alcohol inks and made a few backgrounds - what fun .......and messy!. The Saturday Inspiration challenge on SCS was "Anything Preppy" and I chose the Preppy Puppy as the colours were just up my street! The colours I used were Pool and Clover from the Brights range. I stamped the Agapanthus image from Stampendous and the sentiment in Lights Snow Cap and heat embossed in white. For the image I used a spellbinders deckled edge die and cut out some butterflies with an SU! punch, added some gems and adhered them to the black mat with dimensionals having first overlaid the mat with white baker's twine. I expect I will be using these inks more often now - I so enjoyed working with them.

I have entered this in the following Challenges:
Country View Crafts Challenge #4 Die cuts

Hope you all are having a great day

If all else fails - eat chocolate
