BLOG HOP DAY 3 - WITH TUTORIAL

Hello! I am having a SLOW WORKING day. It didn't take me long to do this...the problem was interuptions from my children and getting sidetracked playing Scrabble on the computer. Here is a tip...don't try to play Scrabble AND Stamp at the same time. I think I am a HOPELESS multi-tasker. LOL


I used the Pigment Scrunch Technique, once again on this card. This time I used Pretty In Pink, Lovely Lilac and Bashful Blue for my Ink Colors. The technique made several sheets, so I have several pieces of cardstock in these colors and in the colors I used yesterday.

When I created this card, I used the Splitcoast Sketch Challenge for this week and the Bloggers Challenge this week was a HAPPY BIRTHDAY theme. Be sure to check out all of the Bloggers Challenge participants projects! They are sure to WOW you!



Here are the details on this card - Coloring Tutorial to follow...
Stamp Sets: Love Blooms, Distress Backgrounds and Frogetful Sam by Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps,


Cardstock: Bashful Blue, Lovely Lilac, Pretty In Pink, Whisper White
Ink: Black Adirondack, Colorbox, Copics see below
Accessories: Punch, brayer, Nestabilities, Sponge, Brads, Primas, Buttons, Linen Thread

Here is the beginning of the tutorial I promised! These are the colors I used...


Here is what you will need...


Copics


Something Sweet to Nibble On -


I always have a lemon drop or Wintergreen Breath Mints


Cardstock


Stamps


Copic Friendly Ink- Adirondack, Brilliance, Distress, etc.




















NOTE: I added Stickles to this after coloring. The ink you use with this is not water proof, so after this, I will not use that method again to add sparkle...



Don't forget the Sweet'n Sassy Stamps Blog Hop is happening. Hop on over to the following Blogs and see their creation!




and back on the SNSS Blog to wrap it up!
