Think Ink!

Hello ladies, today it's time for my weekly Artful INKables post! For today I am sharing with you the 'card' I created for Joy's Artful INKables challenge! You may remember that earlier this week Artful INKables kicked off their Think INK Tuesday Challenges! The first challenge hosted by Joy was to create something in Red, White, and Black! Since we want to spread the love for these challenges different design team members will be posting on different days, and my weekly post is on Saturdays! Woo hoo! My Saturday posts used to be random, and sometimes non existent, but no longer! Each week I will be posting a Artful INKables creation on every Saturday! For this challenge I decided to use one of the new stamp sets just released from Artful INKables! Have you checked out the new release yet? If you haven't what are you waiting for? These stamp sets have been so much fun! For today I am sharing with you a little 'Hot Stuff' Gum box I made, it my first shot at trying to make a box from scratch but I think it turned out to be a lot of fun! I used Pure Poppy as the box base then I created some background paper using the chili pepper from the South of the Border set, which was released last Saturday at Artful INKables! I am having so much fun with this set and when I saw the Big Red gum while standing in line at the grocery store a gum box had to be made! The little chili peppers took forever to color in but I really like the final look and it really shows how versatile this set can be. Thank you for stopping by, be sure to join the Artful INKables INKgirls and create something Red, White and Black this week, here are the details if you missed them:
