Epic Year



I'm playing along with Papertrey Ink's MIM #110 - Collage Elements. My process started out quite accidentally. I left my Enchanted Evening ink open all night so I stamped the pad on a piece of scrap paper to see if it still was good (it was) and thought the paisley shape was fun and could be perfect for the base of a collage. You can see it on the "Thanks" card further down in this post.



I pulled out Grunge Me and went crazy with the geometric shape. I added dots, circles, and splats to build my collage base. I think these are especially great cards for guys. I love the Ad Sense die for the sentiment on this card.



The red dots and the big splat are from Grunge Me. The paisley shape is courtesy of my ink pad.


These great circles and the splat are from a new stamp set I purchased from Precious Remembrance - Positive Thoughts.


I had a blast creating these. Makes me want to throw paint around. ~Rhonda

  3. Very cool! Strong cards! How did you get your inkpad to just create the outline instead of a filled in paisley?!?! Great inspiration!
