Going back through my cards I realized my style is very "cutesy"--I really don't have many masculine or sympathy cards, and though I love the vintage look--I couldn't pull it off if I tried. However, I came across Michelle Zindorf's tutorial for this card, so I gave it a whirl. It's really easy to do, but lots and lots of sponging. It took me 2 tries and well, I won't tell you my mistake here Overall, I'm pleased with how this came out, and I'm sure the recipient will appreciate it. Have a great day, now go "ink something!"
