 Trouble and Max (or is it Mort) are back today so say Hi.

They said they both needed to be here because there is so much to tell you about their card.

Trouble created the sky because he is the one who likes to make a mess.  That's one of the reasons his name is Trouble!  He got out his straw and reinkers and started blowing the ink around.  He likes this Ink Blowing Technique because he never knows how it is going to turn out.  And when he is not careful and maybe blows on the ink a little too hard, he can make a mess.  But he says it's fun, so it is one of his favorite Techniques.

Max said he wanted to build their fence so I let him do that.  Max (or is it Mort?) is a little more particular.  He doesn't like a mess, but he like to make sure things are built strong and straight so that is much more suited to his skills.  As you can see, Trouble doesn't care about things being straight because his inky lines are all over the place!

I have videos available for both the Ink Blowing Technique and building a lattice card (aka, Max's fence).

If you aren't familiar with either of these techniques you can watch these short videos to see just how easy it is.  If Trouble and Max can do it, so can you!

Trouble wanted to do a little more Ink Blowing so he decided he was going to make some "grass" for the inside of the card.  He was having so much fun that I didn't want to disappoint him.  I also thought it looked nice peeking through from behind Max's fence.

What do you think?  How did my monkey friends do?

If you would like a written tutorial for Trouble and Max's card you can use this link to download a copy.

A list of the products they used is shown below.  Of course Trouble had to provide his own straw!
