Crazy Crafters Blog Hop - Special Guest Sandi MacIver

Welcome to the Crazy Crafters Blog Hop. This month we are excited to have a special guest join us Sandi MacIver from Canada! Now even better we get to CASE a project and hop along with Sandi herself! Woo Hoo! We hope you find great inspiration from the projects. The full blog lineup below will help you move along to see all the projects. This is a blog hop you will not want to miss out on!
My inspiration came from this very striking card that Sandi has a YouTube video for here.
I love the bright colours and the black image looks awesome. 
Here is my card using the new Carousel Birthday set - I love this set along with the coordinating papers and embellishments in the New Catalogue (pg 9)
For the most part I used Sandi's colouring tips - the ink pad to the silicone mat, sprayed it with water, but instead of using a bent window sheet, I used cling wrap I love the way the ink looks watercoloured and all without a paintbrush. Watercolouring with a brush is not my strong suit but this technique was quick and easy.
Try making this card!
  • Cardbase in Whisper White Thick cardstock
  • A4 cut in half at 10.5cm and scored at 14.9cm
  • Front:
  • Basic Black Frame 3-7/8" x 5-5/8"
