Hello friends!  We had such a blast sharing our Artisan entries with everyone we have decided to continue sharing our creations with you every other Monday.  So welcome to the launch of Monday Montage!

You should have arrived here from the amazing Bree Renwick’s blog, select the “next” button below and that will take you to the next stop on the hop, the fabulous Dani Dziama’s blog.  I can’t wait to see what they have to share, you won’t want to miss it!

This week I am sharing a card that was inspired by the super talented Cathy Caines!  I have really, really wanted to try this technique ever since I saw her amazing creations!  The base of this card is Whisper White and I cut a second piece of Whisper White 5 1/4″ x 4″ to build my masterpiece on.  I spritzed the smaller piece of cardstock with Tempting Turquoise re-inker mixed with alcohol.  I love how this looks!!!!  I built from there:  I added some splats from Gorgeous Grunge in Tempting Turquoise and I added Off the Grid in White Craft Ink on top of that.  Its really hard to see in the pics, but I added the larger splat from Gorgeous Grunge in Illuminate Ink randomly over the card.  It adds some of that shimmer that is so near and dear to my heart 🙂

I hope you enjoyed our very first Monday Montage!  Plan to come back every two weeks to see what we’re up to, I promise it will be fun and inspire you to make something pretty too!

Make sure you go “Back” if you missed Bree Renwick or you can loop on around by hitting the “Next” button to get to Dani Dziama and the rest of the hop!

  1. This card is so fun! The turquoise splatters are so bold and striking on the white background and I love the look of the white grid stamped on top of the splatters. I gotta try this!

  2. Wow, I am finally catching up with all my favorite bloggers!! (Yes, I read the blogs.. hence why I am so behind!!) Thanks for the shout out and glad you are going wild with ink… Because I know my fingers are only getting worse as I test out different mediums with Stampin’ Up! product. I am a fan of the hops and so glad I’ll be seeing more of you! Yahoooooooooooooooooooooooooooo! (Now… to find a late night snack.. hmmm)
