Good Tuesday Morning!
Well it's the first day of school...still not sure if I want to laugh or cry....ugh!
I loved the freedom I had all summer to do what I wanted, when I wanted....now it's back to a routine. I know I said last year that I wasn't going to volunteer so much....ummmm ya....right! Let's see how long that lasts ;)
This week I was able to play along with the Try a New Technique Challenge on SCS. I was thrilled that I had time in the morning before heading out to shop. This one was called Black Magic. Basically what this technique called for was stamping a lined image onto dark cardstock with either white or vanilla craft ink. Then using your Prisma Pencils and Gamsol(odorless mineral spirits) you colour your images. (You dip the pencil directly into the OMS and then colour) Super fast and super easy! I think it's a fabulous technique and I'll be sure to use it again real soon!
Stamps: A Little Bit of Happiness; Cardstock: Old Olive, So Saffron, Choc Chip, Haiku DP; Inks: White Craft; Accessories: Prismapencils, Gamsol, Choc Satin Ribbon
Yesterday Storage Unit, Inks & More released 6 new fantastic stamp sets! Since I was on vacation the last two weeks of August I didn't have a chance to participate in the sneak peeks but not to worry...I'll be sharing them throughout the next couple of weeks!
Here is a card I made using the Leaf it to Me set. I was going for a nice clean and simple design. I stamped the apple barrel twice and popped it up on little dimensionals. I'm loving the texture of this Core'dinations cardstock. It adds so much to a simple card, don't you think?Stamps: Leaf it to Me; Cardstock: Very Vanilla, Core'dinations in Chocolate Mocha and Cardinal, Scenic Route DP; Inks: Memento Black, Creamy Caramel; Accessories: Copics, Dew Drops, Quickie Glue Pen, Dimensionals
Thanks for stopping by!
I'll see if Chloe will allow me to snap a picture of her this morning before school...if so I'll share it with you all.
