Ballsy Techniques

I'm up late on a Saturday night, listening to quite the Spring storm outside, so it's the perfect time to make a card using some of my favorite challenges & techniques.

The light yellow paper is embossed with a Cuttlebug folder in my BigShot, and then I stamped the sentiments (CAS-ual Fridays) with a bright dark blue ink. The line/dot border (Annabelle Stamps) was stamped twice & embossed with a clear yellow powder. I added 3 gemstones that I colored with a green marker. I added some splatters with a blue spray ink (Tattered Angels); instead of inking the paper, I made droplets on a flat surface & carefully placed the ink droplets for a random effect!
