Make it Monday - Blown Ink

For this week's Make it Monday, Dawn McVey taught us how to use reinkers with a straw to create unique backgrounds.  Using my Ocean Tides reinker with little drops and strong blowing, I got a lot of little spiky streaks.  Perfect for my plan, to use Funky Flowers, the flower that "bursts"!

My flowers were stamped with Royal Velvet and Winter Wisteria, and then I heat embossed the centers with Versamark and Butter EP.  I finished them off with a little pearl center.  Happy with the results ~ thanks Dawn for showing us how to do this!  You can find her tutorial here.

Have a great weekend!

Love how you controlled the direction of the ink rather than the other way around. Those spikes of color look just right as a backdrop to the funky flowers.

love how those green splatters look like they could be leaves or even fresh steams.
