Lets get INKY

While surfing the net yesterday I came across a really cool scrapbooking challenge on the Merly Impressions blog.  Basically, create a layout using ink.  There are some excellent examples over there so well worth a look.  This is my INKY layout:

I used the Cosmic Shimmer Mists in Lava Red, Mango Blaze and Aqua Lagoon.  I painted on the rainbow and then used a straw to blow the ink over the top half of the paper.  It was great fun.  I have  used a black ink pen to write the names of the children and draw a very freehand style frame around the photo.  It was great fun and the whole piece shimmers in the sunshine.  
Check out the challenge and other entries here.
