Faux Frosting – How To!

Hello Sweet Friends!  It’s Charlene here with you today. Welcome to the very first installment of Get Inky.  You’re probably saying, “what???”  Before I explain, let me just say that I’m so happy to be on the team with a group of talented ladies.  I am deeply honored.   
I just adore this month’s release.  The stamps are so cute!  I had a huge smile on my face when I received my stamps and of course also did a happy dance.  
For my card, I used the mixing bowl from Baking Love and borrowed the cutie face from the Press It Wash It set.
Shall we get started?  Are you ready to Get Inky?  Don’t you just love the title?  Alyssa coined it and I love it!
For my card, I was thinking of a mixing bowl falling off the counter.  Seriously, that sentiment was too cute to pass up! 
 To Get Inky:  After stamping and coloring (LEFT), on to make some pink frosting (RIGHT).  I really wanted to use some embossing paste, but since mine hasn’t come yet, I just used what I had in my stash.  I used Distress Stickles in clear rock candy – great consistency for this project.  I dabbed some ink on a craft sheet and mixed it with some clear rock candy until I got the right shade of pink to my liking. The next thing was freehand painting.
Here’s my card: a mixing bowl doing a somersault and spilling all that pink frosting! I thought the sentiment is just perfect for this card.  How about that concerned looking face?  Isn’t that just adorable?!   
I love experimenting in the kitchen, but sometimes things just don’t go my way.  
Thank you so much for joining me today.

Happy Monday,
