Just Add Ink #25

This week's Just Add Ink Challenge is........
Now I love pinks and purples, but this Colour Challenge was a tricky one for me. I ended up being inspired from a couple of cards and sorta joined them all in together.
Yes, I did spill the Chunky Sprinkles on purpose - not sure why, but I did!

The Soft Suede strip has the effect "Cracked Glass".....I coated that strip with versamark, then covered it in clear embossing powder, and while it was still hot, I poured more embossing powder on it and repeated a few more times. When I had it nice and thick, I popped it into the freezer for just a few minutes, and then got it back out again and bent it slightly to "crack" the embossing. I also rubbed some soft suede ink into the "cracks" so they weren't too white and fresh looking. Check out a Splitcoast Stampers tutorial here.

Anyways, hope you like!!!!
