Got inky this afternoon – my hands are a mess!!

Used my “Ziggy“s and did some Inlaid die-cutting!

~ ALOHA  card ~


I used my prize that I won from Neat & Tangled back in May, the Journaling Alphas to cut out the word Aloha from my white panel and from some rainbow paper I inked up. I used my “Ziggy“s to color on an acrylic block and then applied it to watercolor paper.  The white panel was die cut using Lawn Fawn‘s Stitched Rectangles. For my flower I used the stamp set called Tropical Paradise from Sunny Studio Stamps. I stamped the images with Versamark ink and embossed them in white. Colored them in by picking up color from the acrylic block with a wet paintbrush. Then I added the ink splatters.
