Getting Inky with NBUS


In between cutting for all my upcoming classes, I stole a day to play with some of my Never Before Used Schtuff. I have been wanting to try Lindy's Stamp Gang Magicals which are another watercolor powder, but they are sparkly when activated. I won a gift certificate at Simon Says Stamp and I chose a pastel set to play with. I spritzed a square piece of watercolor paper with a little water, and then sprinkled on a little of each color, then spritzed again with water. IRL there is a sparkle mixed in with the fun rainbow of colors. I die cut a Bellina Butterfly Ribbon from Poppystamps and the large Happy Birthday by Elizabeth Crafts to complete the CAS card.

I am entering this card in the Get Inky challenge at Craft Stamper Magazine and the "large sentiments" challenge at Live Love Cards.

Gorgeous. Love the colors in the background. When I clicked on the image for a close up I could really see the sparkle. White makes a nice pop.
