Treat Yourself

The Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger this week is a delicious treat.  I saw the picture and immediately knew I wanted to pull out my alcohol inks and see if I could capture the yummy colors in this treat.

I ended up with two cards using an  alcohol ink background:

The second card uses a smaller piece of the same background:


Now I bet you are wondering what was the inspiration photo was that was food related. :)


The background on the cards was a combination of Alcohol Inks - Butterscotch, Rust, and Caramel. How appropriate that two of the colors were ice cream toppings. :)

The sentiment is from Verses Rubber Stamps - Happy Happy Happy - BB0431-D.  I am happy happy happy that I just added two masculine birthday cards to my stash. Always need more of these. :)

Thanks for stopping by!
