Here's my project that I designed especially for today's hop:


I used Reverse Confetti's Moon Men stamps and coordinating confetti cuts.  They've been stamped in black and colored with various copic markers.  See the background?  I'm a fan of the 'Smooshing Technique'.  I load up an acrylic block with distress oxide ink, one color at a time, starting with the darkest color first.  Spritz the ink with water and smoosh your panel into the ink.  I dry it between colors with my heat gun.


I finished off the panel with speckles of black + white Kuretake Gansai Tambi paint and Copper Peerless Paint.  My card measures at 4.25 x 4.25 inches.

I can't wait to see what my friend Donna Mikasa designed...hop over to her blog next!

If you get lost along the way, Milka has the complete hop listing on her blog!  A big thank you Milka for the invite 💜
