PTI Make it Monday #22

Happy weekend!! Boy is it hot today...I am so NOT complaining though LOL! DO that and it will snow!!! I have a card to share today using a cool inking technique that Papertrey ink showcased on their Make it Monday post HERE

Here is my card:

This is a pic of my home made stamp was sooo much faster using this technique. I only inked it up once with the three different colours of ink and away I stamped :) I have saved it in a baggie for future use:)

Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!

Love your card Tracey :) Perfect colours for making me feel summery in the middle of our winter ;) Love your ric rac, and the beautiful twine hiding between the butterfly and the button - and the orange paper on the right - delicious!!

Fun technique, Tracey! Love your card! It's been very hot here too, (in the 90's) but I also don't complain. . . .it's a whole lot better than shoveling! :)
