National Scrapbook Day....

Happy National Scrapbook Day Everyone!
Good Morning and Happy Saturday... I am out enjoying my Saturday..It is sunny and there is a slight breeze.  The perfect weather.  I love my weekends, the best part is that my hubby is home the entire day.  Yeah for weekends..

So you might be wondering how I created that colored polka dot look, well the lovely Virginia Lu started using alcohol inks by Ranger.  I was so impressed with the look I rushed right over to Michaels and got me some.  Well HERE is a sample of Virginia Lu use of alcohol inks and this is mine.  Now what did I do wrong because mine is clearly not as pretty as Virginia's.  I had told her how she inspired me but was not sure that i understood how they worked.  I even You-Tubed it.  I think you have to use a very glossy paper and I did not here.  So needless to say...I do experiment and it does not always turn out.  It still looks cool but it is suppose to look cooler.. hehe

Recipe:  Tiddly Inks Joy Ride, Copic Sketch Markers, Ranger Alcohol inks and blending solution, Recollection washi tape, Neenah white card-stock, Stampendous sentiment, Martha Stewart button and May Art Burlap string.

Then.... I seen this awesome digital stamp on Melissa's blog and knew I just had to have it.  This image is from Tiddly Inks and is called Joy Ride.  This is the first image I have purchased from Tiddly Inks and let me tell you it will not be my last.  They have the cutest images and it just happened to look great with my little Alcohol Ink experiment.  Funny how that works.  Now I am totally loving it.  I hope that you will too.  I am entering this card into my first Tiddly Inks Challenge ...A Million Ways to Say Thank You.  

Well thanks for stopping by today.
I wish you a wonderful Saturday.

  9. Hi Annette! Very cute little card. You're always coming up with something clever and cute. Thanks for sharing!
    May I ask a favor - if you get a chance. Please stop by and say hello to my friend, Dawn on her blog. (simpleDawn53.blogspot.com)She is feeling a bit lonely over there and not getting comments, etc. I know it would mean a lot to her, and we've all been there. Thanks so much, and hope you're having a great weekend with your hubby.
    Blessings,
    Karen

  11. I like how your experiment turned out! I don't have any AI but I do recall reading you're 'supposed' to use glossy paper. Doesn't mean you can't use others, as you made a great bg here :) And how cute is that Tiddly Inks gal?

  23. I don't care what you say, you did that card right. I love the polka dot swish and the cute car image. We would all be better crafters if we experimented more and made more 'mistakes'.
