Good morning
Well another week I don't know where this year is going!
This week over at the Cuttlebug spot we are celebrating our 1 year anniversary!! To celebrate there is a prize on offer every day this week!!!! So be sure to visit daily as Nilda will be posting daily and the rules will be different each day as to what you need to do to be in with a chance of winning!
This week Nilda asked us to revisit the very first challenge set at the Cuttlebugspot which was to ink your Cuttlebug folders. I wasn't on the DT then so this was my first go at inking the folders but I love the effect and will definitely be using this technique again!
My card is a very simple one this week as my mojo has gone off to hide somewhere! I hope it comes back soon!
I used a 5x5 pink pearlescent card and cut 3 square mats 3", 2 3/4" and 2 1/2" in white and pink pearlescent card which I embossed with QK folder Stripes label. the little duckling is from New Arrivals Cricut Cart and cut at 2 1/2" on shadow and base in white pearlescent card. The base layer is then embossed with CB folder Spots and Dots which I inked up with a Brilliance pearlescent pink ink. The sentiment is cut in white fun foam which I love as it looks like miniature Thickers using the cutting pad from the CB A2 Welcome Baby set. A couple of crystals for the Eye and iand some organza ribbon.
Be sure to visit the Cuttlebugspot as my DT sisters have made some fabulous cards using this technique and be sure to enter our daily competition this week too!
Have a great week everyone!

Oh Julie, how beautiful is this. Trying to figure out how you did the inking... what kind of ink did you use? So many questions.
