Sentimental Sundays #63 ~ Inky Fingers

Well this weeks challenge over at Sentimental Sundays was Inky Fingers and they wanted us to use our inks in a different way and I certainly got inky with this one!  I chose my image which is a pre coloured image of Mikey from Charmed Cards and Crafts and to this while it was in PSE5 I added the sentiment which is a previous freebie from Sentimental Sundays and I decided to keep with the musical theme for my inking and using my brayer I inked up an embossing folder and then added my cs and ran it thru the Big Shot and the little panels are the end result.  (my inky fingers came in the cleaning of the folder!  one of the best ways I have found after removing the majority of any ink left is to sandwhich a baby wipe in the folder and run it thru the BS a couple of times and it cleans it a treat.) I layered these onto brown cs turned down the corners and held them in place with some brads, the background paper is a digi piece which was in my scraps drawer and I really dont know who designed it sorry.  Kept it quite simple (mainly coz I really didnt know what else to add! lol)
