A place to show all my "ink works" and it's my paradise I'm sharing with you.

This card has a lot going on. The front top couple of inches are cut off and I used that same alphabet stamp to add all the "up"s. It's pretty obvious that there is some kind of balloon on the inside.
I stamped the balloon image and paper pieced the colored balloons. The black ones are stickled! I cut little strips of patterened paper to edge the center piece and it still looked lost in the background paper, so I ran a line of black stickles and then it looked right to me. I originally was going to cut apart the greeting and stamp the ups on the front that way, but the letters were just too close - look at how the p's overlap into the second row a little. I love that background with the center covered. It has clouds and stuff. This one took a bit as I had to stamp each letter separately onn the front. I loved the cut front though. Hugs, Barb F
Nearing 70, a great grandmother and just now turning into a crafter, I found that it is fun to share my scrapbooking type crafts with others. I am always organizing even though I am pretty good about putting things away after I use them. Guess that will be my epitaph, she was an organizer and a scrapbooker/cardmaker.
