spring forward


I'm still having fun with my can of air and alcohol inks. I figured out after the first round, that using the lightest colors works best. For these ATC's I used butterscotch, lettuce, stonewashed, and latte. I can only imagine how fun the new lights and brights alcohol ink colors will be with this technique. The blossoms are made with sharpie poster paint pen. The stamps are by My Sentiments Exactly.

I have fun news to share today. One of my button bracelets is featured on the Fiskateer Blog. I was so happy to receive a few jewelry making tools to work with to create this project. I have to say that the tools they sent are so much nicer than the ones from the toolbox I was making do with. I noticed that Michaels carries some of them if you need new tools.

There are a couple of fun challenges going on this week. Stop by Winterfest 2009 at 2peas stamping board. We have challenges running all week long, and I'm hosting one of them. SNR Card Universe is hosting a Spring Fling for the next two weeks. I'll be teaching a class on the last day, but there's lots of fun between now and then. Thanks for stopping by.

Great ATC's...and I learned the same thing about Tim's technique but using the earthtones! I'm waiting impatiently for all the new colors to arrive. Stamping over the background makes such a difference, doesn't it?
