This is my entry for the Letter C Alphabet Challenge. I used all pink inks when I made this, but many tones of coral came out so that is my C for this card. I will be sending this card to Dani who founded the Alphabet team. She is going through a tough time so I hope she enjoys this pink card I made specifically for her. I placed this stamp in the MISTI, inked it up using 3 distress inks straight from the ink pads, spritzed it a couple of times with water, and stamped it. I thought I may have to repeat the process, but it was not necessary. Then I applied all 3 colors plus gold to my craft mat and spritzed them well with water. Picked up the waterered-down ink with the paint brush and tapped it against my finger to get the "paint splatters." This is a really fun card to make and I enjoyed making it for Dani. Thanks for looking! ~Karen.

I still have to give this technique a try. You can make a million of these and I will love each and every one of them.
Just because it was HANDMADE does not mean it was CHEAP, because why send a store-bought card that cost $4.95 when you can make it yourself for $89 worth of supplies?
