For a friend

I have a confession...
My fingers are covered.... COVERED!!!!
in INK!!  ok, so I've discovered Dylusions Ink Sprays...
I'm completely addicted!  I want to spray everything!
In fact, I have sprayed a lot of things that may or may not ever make it onto this blog.

Soooo for my offering today I made this fun card
the background is all dylusions ink sprays, I then did the "ghosting" technique using
my chicken coop stamp from Unity Stamps Co.
It's super easy you just spray water on the stamp and stamp over the ink!
Cool right??
Ok, so then I stamped over the handmade background paper with another Unity stamp
the row of butterflies...
I also playing along with the sketch challenge at Simon Says Stamp Challenge
where I had a choice of two sketches to play along with.
I sorta flipped it a little, and I'm so proud of my background paper that
I didnt' want to cover it up too much.
I'm also gonna link up with the new challenge at Dilly Beans for a friend
I just love this mermaid!  And I love the contrast of the butterflies with her being under the sea!
Finally, the little sentiment.... I have a confession.
I have been hoarding this whole pack of little metal plaques since I got them last year. 
I've pulled a few out a couple of times, but never have the heart to attach them.
Today... it's attached!
