Love U

Hello! Today's Clean And Simple 4 class at OnlineCardClasses was all about inking. So, I decided to get super inky. ;) I also used my Cricut Explore to create a mask for the first time! Fun stuff! I cut this image from the Valentine's Day cartridge out of Post-It Craft Paper. I put the dial on the Explore on the cardstock setting, and it cut like a dream. I started by inking up the panel with spun sugar and worn lipstick Distress inks. Then I put the mask on. 
I sprayed picked raspberry distress ink in a mini mister over it. And then I flicked on some of that ink. Then I sprayed it with Gold Lame Heidi Swapp Color Shine spray. It looks SO COOL in real life. Basically impossible to get a good picture of all the shine. 
After I took off the mask, I also flicked on some gold color shine. This card looks different depending on how the light catches it. :) 

Happy Friday! I hope you have an awesome weekend!
