Bring on the Cake

Here is the card that my mom got from my family for her birthday. It's a simple easel card and I had so much fun making it.

A long while back (like a year or two ago), my MIL and I were shopping and were able to catch an Ink Potion No. 9 in-store demo and were amazed by the results! So, being the generous person that she is, my MIL bought me a bunch of stuff so that I could start creating with it at home. Of course, once I got it home, I never got around to using it and slowly but surely it got lost in a sea of crafting stuff. Okay, so I cleaned up and kind of organized my crafting stuff and what do I find? hahaha....yes my Ink Potion No. 9 stuff.

This time I decided to actually put it to use. I mixed and sprayed and mixed some more and had fun making different colors and loving the shimmery effect of the Ink Potion No. 9. In the end, I decided to use the purple that I mixed together since it's my mom's favorite color.

Oops, wasn't quick enough snapping a picture of this kids already signed it! Oh and I used some green distress ink on some white CS before I sprayed my purple mixture over it so there is a subtle hint of green at some of the edges (since I was going to initially use it on the card my dad gave to my mom)!

Made a matching little gift bag (using my SU! Fancy Favor bag die) for my mom's gift. The purple circles are punched from white CS sprayed with my purple Ink Potion No. 9 mixture.

Well, there you have it. I'm hoping to start using this product more because I really do love the results. Thanks for stopping by again! Have a FANTABULOUS holiday weekend!

Oooh...that Potion No.9 looks like some pretty neat stuff! Is it hard to use? Love all the GLITTERY results. Where do they sell this?
Love how your mil's card and matching gift bag turned she LOVED it! I especially like how you did the different sized circles for your "patterned" cool!
