A funny thing happened


If you read me blog or look at my gallery on Splitcoast regularly, you will know that I am terrified of color, I am a real soft subtles girl, I like soft and elegant.
Anyway, my friend Jen's inkpads and craft items regularly talk to her, check out her blog, it's in the list on the right, and you'll see what I mean.
Well, unbelievably, my Bold Bright ink pads started shouting at me! They wanted to be used and they wouldn't shut up! In my craft room, I have full size pads in every color family except BB, I only have the spots, but the spots were screaming at me, they insisted on being used!
This is the card they drove me to make, lol. Sorry, more cuttlebugging after I swore I'd stay away, but it waved at me and I got distracted.
The image is SU Sassy Stems and I watercolored using my aquapainter and ink pads in Yoyo Yellow (Yucky Yellow to me), Green Galore (green gunge to me) and Ballet Blue that I love, well it is from the Rich Regal family. I covered the flowers and water with diamond glaze and in real life it looks like an epoxy sticker. The ribbon is from Jody's share that I entered, I love all my ribbon, I have a real weakness, not as bad as Jody's, but bad enough!
Finally, thanks to my crop-a-dile, I am finally using my huge stash of eyelets, love these floral eyelets.
Hopefully my ink pads will stop shouting at me now!!! :)
