Blogger's Challenge using the colors Blue and Kiwi




Hello fellow bloggers, I am a little late with Blogger's Challenge.  List mom Lisa Somerville enlisted us with the task to incorporate the colors "Blue, White and Kiwi...of course I steered a little off the challenge...Click HERE to see what other challenge players created.
I did not have a Kiwi ink pad, so I improvised using Tim Holtz Distress inks on Glossy Cardstock.
My creative style for these two cards is a techie from Technique Junkies, called Background Whimsy - Dye Method.  As you can see, I went crazy with Ranger's Inkessentials white pen.....this technique is highly addictive.
Ranger Glossy White Cardstock
Tim Holtz Distress Inks:  Barn Door, Peeled Paint, Wild Honey Bundled Sage and Tumbled Glass
Cardstock, Oval punches, Green Satin Ribbon are from Stampin Up
The Background Stamps are Bella Toile and Floral both from Stampin Up.
Sizzix - Tim Holtz Alterations (On The Edge) Scallop borders
Maya Road Felt Pearl Blossoms
Pearls and Gems are from the Dollar Store.
