Happy Valentines Day

Hello my Crafty Friends!!
Hope everyone is looking forward to 
a fun and crafty weekend ahead!!!
So I watch a lot of videos by 
and this one blog post and video
really inspired me a lot!!!!
I just had to try it for myself. 
Well I swear I don't feel very 
comfortable making a CAS style card. 
I love them when others do it but I feel
when I do it......well not so much!!
But in person these came out very shimmery
due to the little water spritzer I had to spray
water on the background used to have some 
shimmer paint in it. So it actually looks nice. 
I just can't seem to photograph it looking 
shimmery is all! 
So here is what I came up with....

This one I used the spritzing bottle
to get the ink moving around. 

This one I used just a paint brush 
and spritzed it a little after it had 
all dried. 

They look better in person. I still like 
Kristina's better. Just need to play
around with it some more.
