friend.



Hello and Happy Saturday!  I have a project to share that didn't turn out how I thought it would but I still like the end results:

cardstock:  strathmore watercolor, stampin' up gold metallic  stamps:  stampin' up/you're wonderful  ink:  ranger/archival/black, distress markers, fresh ink fuchsia  other:  stampin' up banner framelits, paintbrush

 Here's the photo I posted on IG on Friday morning:


I had stamped the blooms with Ranger Archival ink but guess what?  It ran when I hit it with the diluted reinker/water combo...boo!  So I had to cut out the banner again, stamp, mask, stamp and start all over.  The 2nd time I used my Distress Markers and a paintbrush.  I do love that look!  The colors turned out softer since I don't have all the Distress Marker Colors.



LOVE the Stampin' up You're Wonderful (photopolymer) set:


Have you seen the new TGIF Challenges?  So much wonderful inspiration....Loved receiving an HM for TGIF02....super honored.


Here's to a relaxing weekend!

  7. Really pretty. Do you think the fresh ink would work with another water resistant black ink or no? I've never tried deluting the fresh ink before.

    Love the end result of your project, the flowers are very pretty and combine so well with soft coloring; in fact SU has amazing products, sadly I can't buy them easily...
