Just the addition of a new ink colour or cute card is enough to get my creative juices flowing again.

Discovering a cool effect.

The background was created by blending Kitsch Flamingo onto white card. I spritzed it and dried it with a heat tool.

Then the magic happened!

After stamping my Hippos and balloons I coloured them in and I love how the pink from the KF mixed with the grey of my TriBlend Brush Marker. It created such a cool greyish/pinkish effect! Don’t you just love ink?

Below are all the colours I used on this card.

Colour the balloons in and add a little glossy accents to the left edges.

Stamp and colour the birds in and fussy cut out, then add to the project with 3D foam pads.
