I made two bad decisions. The first was to try and save time and use my Making Memories paper trimmer to trim out some cardboard for a canvas I was working on. Yeah....that didn't work. So, new paper trimmer is on the way from Amazon.
My second indiscretion was a move made in haste. I was so excited about how lovely my distress and alcohol ink background was turning out, I just couldn't wait to cut out my oval panel. The problem...I never took the piece off my lovely Inkssentials Craft Sheet. So now I have a craft sheet with a lovely oval cut into it.Brilliant!
I went nice and Clean with this made-at-midnight card...I'd say simple too but there's way too much ink on this card for that :) I still think it qualifies as CAS though in that it finished with a nice clean layout.
I created this card by layering alcohol inks over smooshed distress ink. I love the effect...too bad my camera isn't as great at capturing the fabby colors and intensity. Picture butter yellow with some vibrant orange, copper and mustards.

So....off to purchase some good old Coca Cola to stash in my craft room for late night emergencies!
