Think Ink Tuesday



Happy Tuesday Everyone! I have some exciting news, Artful Inkables is having a challenge on Tuesdays... Think Ink Tuesday. Every other Tuesday a member of the design team will be hosting a challenge for you to do. This week it is JOY. Please come and join the fun at OUR BLOG. The fabulous news is you will be eligible to win a AI Grab Bag if you play along this week. Who wouldn't love to win some free stuff. No need to use AI stamps, but if you have them why not use them!!! If you click on the logo it will take you to the challenge as well.


This weeks challenge is to make a black, white, and red card. I couldn't wait to ink up this new set called Steampunk Sarah. I had a blast making this one. Wow is she ever fun to color, and I just love the background stamp that comes in this set. Hope you all enjoy my card and thanks for stopping by today. I hope everyone has a fabulous Tuesday.

This is a perfect card to show off Steampunk Sarah! The girl popps off the page with your vibrant coloring and she is complimented nicely with the black and white background. I love the added touch of the 'real' time piece as well. Super!
