Pinspired Challenge #5 sponsored by It’s Always Fabulous

Welcome to another Pinspired Challenge, where we turn pins into projects!!! We have a super fun inspiration photo to inspire you with today! I love the pattern, the colors, the whole shabang! We are sponsored by It’s Always Fabulous who has graciously offered up a $15 gift certificate to to their online store. But that’s not all! Everyone that participants in the challenge will receive a FREE SHIPPING CODE to their store!!!! Be sure to check out their store as well as their blog!

I was inspired by both the pattern and colors of the photo so here is what I created, using Tim Holtz Distress Markers and this Hero Arts stamp.


I love the distress ink markers and this is the only method I have found to get the colorful background! I simply colored directly onto the stamp with various colors, huffed on the stamp and stamped! For more ways to use distress markers, check out the video I made here. I also used the markers to create the sentiment.


Again, I colored directly onto the stamp from this set. I started by coloring the sentiment with one color and then went over the top with another color in a flicking like technique, I demonstrate this in the youtube video linked above.

I hope that you will play along with us. You’ve got 10 whole days to get inky!!! You can create anything you want. A card, layout, DIY project, altered art, whatever you want!!! 🙂 Here a look at the challenge badge!!!! 🙂
