My Sweet Petunia & Ink Blot Shop Collaboration Bloghop


Hello and welcome to the collaboration hop between My Sweet Petunia and Ink Blot Shop. If you're like me you haven't heard of Ink Blot, so we are hoping this blog hop will remedy that situation. She has some fabulous stamps in her shop. I especially love the crafty ones. 


Two lucky commenters from the blog hop will win one of two prizes, a $50 shopping spree at Mysweetpetunia.com or the two stamps sets below from the Ink Blot Shop. You must leave comments Sunday March 11th @11:59 CST. The winners will be announced on Tuesday March 13th on the Ink Blot Shop and My Sweet Petunia blogs. 
There is a complete list of all the participants at the bottom of this post.



For my card I used the Arts & crafts sentiments set. This is a great set with lots of cute sentiments.
I started with top folding white card base and a watercolor panel cut down with a stitched die. I created the background by using Ken Oliver color burst and water. After I sprinkled some color on the panel, I spritzed it with water and got a gorgeous result. I placed the panel in the Original Misti so I could get a good impression for heat embossing. Because of the colorful background I ended up embossing it with white embossing powder so it would stand out more. 
I love this sentiment because I am most happy when I'm inky



Happy Hopping
