Ok, now onto our card today...which was super fast fast fast.... I made this for my little brother (ok so he's like 6'6"...so not so little), but he's in a rock n roll band...The LOVE Handles (he's the youngest Love Handle at age 33), and they play 70's & 80's Rock Music...they are AWESOME! So I thought he'd appreciate this card...it is void of any "major" colors because he's color blind...so he sees things in shades of grey...in fact the red on here he'll think of as green...because of it's shade, but I digress... The layout was one of the Mojo Monday sketches (not this week's but past), and the sparkly paper seemed very "rockerish". The stamps were BRAND SPANKING new, so they didn't ink up quite as well as I would have liked, even though I stamped and restamped and scrubbed...sigh... I have a LOVE/HATE relationship with new acrylics...I LOVE them 'cuz they're new and hate them 'cuz they aren't cured quite yet... so maybe by next card the ink will settle in a bit better. Anyway, recipe below...
- Stamps: H & M Rock On
- Ink: Mary Cherry Red, Staz On Black
- Paper: DCWV
- Other: Circle punches by EK Success, Heart Stickers by K & Co., Pop Dot
And now onto my good mail day...I got a lovely package from KL Stamping and Scrapping Friday (it's been a super busy weekend) with this lovely little Tilda with a Candle from Magnolia stampers. Now I've never tried an EZ Mounted Stamp before, I buy everything unmounted ('cuz let's face it...I'm cheap!), so I'm anxious to ink her up and try her out. Be sure to stop by KLSNS' blog...they are having a fantastic contest this month where you could win some Yummy paper (Bittersweet by Basic Grey)...not too mention all the fabulous ideas...those dt ladies are just soooooo talented! They also have blog candy quite a bit...and everything they have offered so far has been uberly awesome!
