Giving me Goosebumps

Happy Friday!!
Another week gone by ...

In between the usual household chores and some bread making yesterday I got a chance to play with some inks
I had a couple of butterflies left over from the project I showed you in my previous post and I discovered a bottle of Goosebumps in my cupboard ... I must have bought that over a year ago and never tried it ... well now I'm hooked!
It gives a lovely definition to stamped images ... I made a card for the challenge over at 

This is my first time playing here ... and the challenge is to make your own background
Here's my card


The BGstamp I used is one my friend Keren gave to me ... from Indigo Blu I think... I sprayed it with Goosebumps, dabbed it a little and took a few Memento ink pads and started sponging


I then did the same with the butterflies which were originally just cut from the same plain white card stock ... This time I used a small flower and leaf stamp that was also hiding away ... unfortunately I don't know where it's from and to be honest it didn't look very interesting until I applied this technique


I'm really loving the bright colours lately ... it must be Spring lol!
I didn't think this card needed much more so all I added was a silvery branch and stamped a little text on the bottom right corner


I do hope you all have a great weekend ... 
Thanks for stopping by

Wow, wow, wow, what an amazing card I absolutely love what you did with that Goosebump stuff. I have been wondering about it for a while, but you have now totally convinced me, I need it lol, this is just stunning!!

Such a beautiful card!
Bread making, oh I must get some tips from you, I was never successful in making bread, and it is so funny, just before I do some blog hopping, I was just searching for bread recipe, thinking that I might have some time tomorrow to give it another try!

WOW - absolutely GORGEOUS, Ros, such wonderful colors for Spring! TFS
I did some bread making yesterday too - I tried some gluten free bread - it is actually very nice and doesn't give a heavy feeling after eating either. Have a lovely weekend!

Ros, this is stunning! The colours and details, a beautiful piece of art. I Love, love the fine branch as the antenae and body. Absolutely brilliant!

Lisette Baker said...

This just oozes spring. The use of the branch is inspired and I love the background. I've wondered about Goosebumps and I can now see how effective they can be. Happy weekend.

Wow Ros! What a gorgeous card! Love the beautiful inky background! Stunning!

Darnell J Knauss said...

Ros, what you said. I have goosebumps from this card! I didn't know goosebumps could be bottled (aren't there ever such clever people in the world!) and that you could use them on cards in this exquisite way. I mean, shut up! This is being pinned and truly needs to be hanging in an art gallery somewhere! Same thing with your butterfly yesterday. Picture me: bowing in awe!!

Have a great day!! Hugs, Darnell

Diane said...

A winner for sure!!!! I've seen Goosebumps but never bothered to see what it did lol! Your card is so completely gorgeous!!!! Will have to try it :-) have a great weekend!

Tracy said...

I've seen the Goosebumps in my local craft stores but I've never worked with it. The texture looks amazing and I think you found the perfect way to use those extra butterflies. Lovely creation Ros. Hugs!

Davi said...

Oh MY Ros is that every fabulous!!Ive never heard of Goosebumps but it sure looks interesting. I love love the background you created with it and the butterfly looks stunning on it :)

Sue Lelli said...

I, too, have goosebumps but have never used it. Now I can't wait! Your card is just Gorgeous, Ros! Love your bright colors and the wonderful texture that added! WOW!!!

Linda Breedlove said...

Oh wow, Ros... what a beauty! This is gorgeous... LOVE these colors and your background!!! The pearl body is such a nice touch... love it!
I've used Goosebumps several times, the first being a learning experience I'll not forget. I didn't cover my desk and keyboard with paper towels beforehand and just started spraying my project. Needless to say, they both still have "bumps" on them. I don't think this stuff will ever come off, LOL!
Have a great weekend!
