Happy Little Stampers CAS: Inky

It's time for the Happy Little Stampers CAS challenge, and this month we've got a fun theme: Inky! Inky may seem like it lends itself to more complex projects, but you'll see from the HLS design team that a clean and simple card can also be inky. Here's mine: 

It's a little layered, but still has an overall clean look, I think, and apart from the drying time, was quick and easy to make. I used pink, red, purple and silver alcohol inks on some mineral paper for my main panel - I decided to try mineral paper to see if it took heat better than Yupo paper does. It doesn't. :D While the inks dried, I die cut my heart from silver glitter paper and black cardstock. I also white-embossed the sentiment on black. Putting everything together, I have a dramatic-looking CAS valentine. With that in mind, I'm adding this card to the CASology Affection challenge and Simon Says Stamp's With Love challenge. 

I hope you will get inky - but stay clean! ;) - and join us! 

Supplies: Neenah white & Stampin' Up basic black cardstock, Yasutomo mineral paper, Concord & 9th Little Love Tags stamp, Versamark ink, Wow white embossing powder, senorita magenta, chili pepper, passion purple, pearl & silver Jacquard PiƱata inks, Simon Says Stamp scribble heart & MFT blueprints 24 dies
