Color Smash! - JUGS #41

Time for a new Just Us Girls technique challenge!

Our hostess this week, Maria, is challenging all of us to get messy :) It's an ink, spray and smash technique challenge!!! How fun AND therapeutic :) Splitcoaststampers has a tutorial HERE so get out those reinkers :)

Here's my take on the challenge;

I wanted the inky paper to be a focus so I tried not to cover it too much. I did stamp on top of it though :) I've become addicted to crocheting these little flowers - how cute are they?!?! There are a ton of free web tutorials out there - Nichole Heady has a picture tutorial on her blog. Because I just started to crochet, I needed a bit more "visual assistance", so I found this video tutorial by Terri that highlights the process of making the second part of the flower. I used embroidery floss and a D crochet hook - next time I may use a C hook like Nichole did in her tutorial. You'll see these little fellas pop up on my cards from time to time - I'm "hooked"..... get it? Sorry.... I couldn't help myself :) I have to say, I really like crocheting, although crochet patterns are like a foreign language to me - internet to the rescue! As I get more experience, I think Ima gonna try something else in the near future :)

In other fun news, notice the sentiment on my card? We've got reason to celebrate over at the ol' JUGS blog...
... it's Kathryn's birthday this coming week!!!!! 

Be sure you drop by her blog and wish her a great one!
