Abi Ballerina is one of All Dressed Up's freebies. Isn't she adorable? :~) I colored her with Copics and used this week's Tuesday Morning Sketches sketch for the layout.
I used a new-to-me Spellbinders die set on the inside, sponged Spun Sugar Distress Ink inside the die on the white sentiment layer, and stamped a Verve birthday sentiment in Peacock Feathers. I ran out of the dark pink dp that I used on the front, and wanted to use it on the inside, too, so I decided to try to duplicate it. Since you could only see the edges of the dp on the front of the card, I think it turned out pretty close. I used a fiery red cs, spritzed it with Bubble Gum Pink Dylusions Ink Spray, then stamped it with an old Inkadinkado stamp (I think it is called Heart Blossom Square) in Frost White Colorbox pigment ink. A word of caution on Dylusions Ink Sprays...rather than take the time to get out my spray box when I sprayed the ink, I decided to just hold the die cut over a trash can and spritz it. BIG MISTAKE! Here's what happened:
You can't see it in this picture, but my thumb, including the nail, is completely pink on the other side, too, and it won't come off! Oh, I know it will eventually wear off, but for a few days I'm stuck with this! I've tried soap and water, baby wipes, stamp cleaner, Staz-On cleaner, and even mineral spirits. Nothing works! I'm used to having ink stained hands, but never anything this vivid or permanent. It would have taken me all of 15 seconds to set up my spray box. You know I won't skip that step again! ;)
Thanks for stopping by, and have a great day!
