My contribution to the shoe box swap ~ Sponging

Here is my contribution to the shoe box swap. I was playing with my new big shot machine by sizzix, and cut out the "frame" shape you see in the center of the card. Then we started adding color.
We put a baby wipe on a paper plate and added 4 colors of reinkers, pink piroette, tangerine tango, red riding hood red and kiwi kiss. Starting with the darkest color on the outside, we swiped the ink with sponges towards the outside of the card. We stamped the main image and sentiment in chocolate chip ink and then sponged a little chocolate ink around the outside of the card.

Next, we took a small half-bead from the pretties kit and added it with a glue dot.

Then we punched a hole with the slit punch and tied some of the new kiwi/vanilla double sided ribbon as an added touch. Stick it all together and you're done!

We had SO much fun at the shoe box swap last night. We discussed making it a bi-annual event in lieu of a team meeting! I'm in!
