Getting inky with ATCs

I have so many other things to do atm that crafting is having to take a bit of a back seat. However, I need to do something for a couple of swaps, so a good excuse to get inky - particularly as this month's ATC swap on BF forum is 'ink'.

I dabs a mixture of red pepper and wild plum alcohol inks with blending solution on to white shiny card and then stamped Penny Black sparklers with stazon vibrant violet, edging the ATCs with the stazon.

Bubbly Funk forum next CJ

It's been nearly a year since the BF forum CJ group started sending round their journals - which means that we now get to see other people's CJs nearly finished. This DLO is for Leigh's Astrology journal - the idea is for each of us to do something to represent our star sign. I didn't find this easy because I don't 'do' star signs and astrology, so I kept this very matter-of-fact (I was pleased to see that this was how most of the participants had responded).

The background papers are My mind's eye wild asparagus. It was an opportunity to use one of my favourite stamps - the big Magenta lion one, simply inked with memento rich cocoa. Ribbons and sun sticker from stash.

Colours are for SPCC 105:
