Smiley from millan.net  Happy Thursday!  A few months ago, Beate from Splitcoaststampers asked me to write a tutorial on that “inky thing I do.”  It was published yesterday on Splitcoaststampers and can be found under the Resources section as “Wrinkle-Free Distress.”  I contacted Tim Holtz and asked his permission to recreate the tutorial for SCS, and what he actually called this technique . . . I didn’t want to get it wrong!

Here’s the card I created as my sample for the tutorial.

Instead of letting the tag stand alone, I decided to incorporate it into a card.  Once I had finished the tag, and had the layout for the card, I stamped the flourish images on both the card front and the tag.  I lined the flourishes up, and raised the tag with mounting tape.  Some of the images on the card, i.e., the butterflies and small flourishes are a sneak peek of what’s coming next from Rubbernecker Stamps.

Good morning!  Smiley from millan.net Tomorrow’s the big day when I head to Dallas and I can’t wait to visit with all the Texas girls!  That leaves today, which is Tuesday, and of course that means its Treasure Hunt Tuesday at Rubbernecker.  You can find all the deets on the Rubbernecker Stamps Blog!

I don’t have much to show you today.  I was in the studio working on my Blogger Challenge Card for tomorrow when I was called upon to work on some demos for the weekend.  I firmed up some new items for my alcohol ink demo, then went to work on a new demo.  We needed another demo for the booth, and this is what I came up with —
a bit monochromatic stamping, using three colors in the same family.
