It’s no secret that I think Nicole Maki is a Goddess when it comes to her creativity. She’s amazing. So it’s no surprise that when I saw her “Clean and Simple Card Set,” I was inspired. So I decided to give it a go with one of the Chicks from Smeared Ink’s Chicks Dig Guns set, along with some of the splatters from the Inky Dreams set (also Smeared Ink). Truth be told, I think the size of my card is too big. But my smaller cards are too small. I will probably cut this one down (just a little off the top) so that the chick fits better. But boy! What a mess she’s made! I hope she has some Clorox hidden somewhere… I stamped her with StazOn and added no color or shading. I stamped the splatter with Scarlet from Color Box then embossed it with Ranger’s red powder for some sheen and dimension. Yum. I also added a bit of a shadow underneath the chick with my grey watercolor marker. But that’s about it. Fast, simple…and a bit gruesome. Here you can see the embossing. I wonder what pissed her off. But I sure hope she’s gotten over it now. On that cheerful note, I bid you adieu. I have much to do in preparation for the kidlings bash, and I really need to get a move on! Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
Awesome! You are so creative and I love how you are always thinking outside the box and doing your own thing! Fabulous! Hugs ~ Eri

Oh my goodness, Alison!!!!
I love it! Embossing the blood is brilliant because you really add a layer of texture as well as color!
And thank you for the kind words, I shook my head in disbelief that I inspire *you*… You who is so terribly awesome.
