MIM: Blown Ink

I am playing along with the challenge this week at PTI's'MIM. I didn't have too much luck using PTI's ink as it mostly saturated the card and didn't seem to go anywhere when I blew through the straw.  Maybe I am not full of hot air afterall. I switched to Glimmer Mist and got a better result although most of it came out spidery..

 I used the striped IP for some added background texture which didn't seem to show up in the photo.


I am not really crazy about the way the card turned out, but it is going to one of my teenage neices who has a birthday next month. I think it would be perfect for a young girl.

CAS-ual Fridays is continuing with their birthday challenge. So I will link this card up there too!

 Thank you for stopping by to take a peek.

Carol- I am laughing out loud about your hot air. This card is very cool looking, and I know that a teenaged girl will love it. I do need to take a peek at that video, and see what you are talking about, though.

Love the look of this - the ink is like streamers being thrown around behind the balloons!
