The Black Splat!


     This is the card and gift bag I had made for my son’s birthday.  If you had read my earlier post about his party invites (Extreme Invites) you’d understand the significance of “the black splat”.  Well, I just had to make his card and the bag with a black splat!  It’s what he asked for :) 

100_3247     This set was so super simple…thanks to the Extreme Elements stamp set.  I simply used a ready-made plain gift bag and added a card stock front to it.  One point of interest, the splat is in Basic Black Classic Ink.  The birthday sentiment, found in the Bring On The Cake set, is stamped using Whisper White Craft Ink.  The black looks as if it bled through the craft ink giving it a bluish color.  You can see it where the stars where stamped over the black splat as well.  It’s kind of a cool effect…not an expected effect but cool just the same.  Maybe I need to re-ink my craft pad though too???  Hmm…anyway, Jess loved it!

     It’s been crazy in the Holston house with the end of the school year.  Last day is today!  Yay!  I’m looking forward to the slower pace of summer break.  Of course, I give it about a week and I’ll be ready to send them back to school ;)  I have lots of teacher gift stuff to show you.  I just need to find time to breathe a minute or two before I can post them.  Ahhh…it won’t be long.  Thanks for stopping by today.  Enjoy!
