Trying  MASKING 

For this one I used the little cup for the ink and I had no control
I do need a vertical board for the cup or I will spill the ink out 

For this one I used the little bottle 
Felt much better 
I do need to  have much more work prepared to airbrush 
Once it is set up it is very quick .

Christmas Gift

Got this surprise shocking Gift for Christmas  I am stunned
I have no idea how to use it or what to use it for 
I watched videos and 
Today I practiced on skys 
Turned out more like baby backgrounds 
However they are all  useable 
Next I think masking is the step 
And I may need a vertical surface 

They are a little stronger in color than the photo

LCC Sketch

I though about this for a bit 
First I  panicked thinking I would have to draw something 
Then I realized I could do a card from a sketch 

                                         It is a simple sketch and after it is finished
                          I am thinking I am doing too many cards without stamping and coloring
                                     Show us what your take is

 A friend came across FREE envelopes at a yard sale
Thinking of me she took them and passed them to me
They are not a size  I would use in card making so I came up with this
This one is for her

I made the folder with two layers of heavy card stock
Putting them together so they would fold over the envelopes
I glued 6 envelopes together to make the pockets
Decorated the front one and added cards to each pocket  (index )
With tabs

I used a die to shape the front edge and a bit of valcro to hold it closed
Hope she likes it when I get it to her

I have enough envelopes to  make 50 of these  ANYBODY?????????

Gelli Pad

I received a beautiful card from my British pen pal 
When I asked about it she sent links for me to see the technique 

I had most of the supplies but not  the main piece A ROUND GELI PAD 
So like all crafters
I put on the thinking cap and decided I could make the technique work with templates 

So I got everything out 
Cut the template with a circle die

                                              Applied the in with brayer to the gelli pad

Stamped on the gelli pad 

Then laid  the template over the area I want to use
                                                           That may not be clear .
                                             The images at the bottom are the stamps I used


 Smooth the cardstock over the template to transfer the ink design on to the cs
