Random and a share…

Some random stuff for tonight…

First, I have some fab things for you to all check out…

  • Remember my Thinking Inking video series over at 2peas that I did last summer? (The series of 27 videos can be found HERE.) Well, some awesome stampers (lead by Jan) over on the message board there are doing a challenge and swap based on the class. Check it out HERE.
  • A fellow stamper named Ree is doing a card drive for a 16-yr-old named Matt who was in a bad accident. She could use some more cards – please help her out HERE.
  • Can't wait for this weekend! Jana and I are taking classes from Jenn Shurkus at Simply Scrapbooks. She is such a fun teacher – so excited. Hope to see some of you there.[p

Next, just a card share from a few months back. The navy part started out as white. I rubbed it like crazy with Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink until it was solid navy. I then inked up THIS stamp with Versamark ink and sprayed it with pearlized water. (A mix of perfect pearls and water.) After stamping it on the inked paper, I let it dry. LOVE that look. The flower is embossed with black on watercolor paper. I smeared some Wild Honey and Barn Door Distress Inks on my craft sheet and added a few sprays of water and a couple globs of Liquid Pearls. Mixed it up and pressed the flower in it and let it dry. And here we have it…
