Hello and welcome to my happy place....

Chanya is our host for the new challenge at CCM and her theme is 'Get Inky/Messy' and this is my take on that, somewhat of an explosion of inky colour!

In total I used 9 Alcohol Inks onto glossy white card.  I added droplets of 3 different colours onto a blending tool and dabbed the colour over the card, then another 3 colours, followed by the last 3 colours

This was then die cut and adhered to white cardstock

I used the same stamp, by Altenew, to stamp around the border

I added a panel of fuchsia card to the white card base and a smaller panel of sherbert card to that, finally adding the final top panel

I used only 3 colours to add a border to the inside of the card and stamped another sentiment from the same stamp set
A splash of colour to the corner of the envelope and 'Happy Mail' stamped about it

The same to the back of the envelope
