Inky Divas Challenge - Week of April 7

It's been a long time since I posted but I am going to try to be better at sharing.  As part of the Inky Divas Stampin' Up! group I am hoping to participate in each week's challenge and post my entry on my blog.  I joined the MDS (My Digital Studio) Adventure Club hosted by Heather Summers and Kimberly VanDiepen and participate in the MDS Weekly Challenges - also hosted by Heather and Kimberly.  My goal is to post my completed pages/projects here as well.

For today I am sharing the card I made for the Inky Divas challenge for the week of April 7.  The challenge was to make a card with a background created by inking up an acrylic block.  I decided that rather than inking the block with an ink pad I would use my markers to scribble the colour onto the block.  The look I achieved is similar to the results from the painter's tape technique.  Check out this tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers.

I'm really pleased with how it turned out.  I have the overall look without the inky fingers!
