Sketchabilities #136

Participating in Blog challenges has been something I've been wanting to do. I'm hoping to submit to at least 1 scrapbook and 1 card challenge per month.

Not only does it feel good to share your own work with people who appreciate the art we do, but I really feel it supports those in the industry that are trying to keep it alive and thriving.

 My take

"Nothing Better"

This photo was taken when Dads Nephew, wife (in photo) and their 2 friends drove their motorbikes across Canada (from Manitoba) to visit. This was after our walk on Little Dover's fabulous boardwalk

Joy, Angela, Dad & Me

Supplies Used: This was another fabulous kit purchased at My Stamping Studio

  • Fancy Pants "Melogy"

  • Melogy- Large Decorative Tags

  • Melogy- Library Cards

  • Melogy- "Nothing Better" wooden Tag

  • Melogy- Flair Buttons

  • Tim Holtz Courtyard Die

  • Archival Ink - Watering Can

  • Texture Paste, Alcohol Ink, Stencil

  • Blue WOW embossing powder

  • Sewing

  • Background Stamp

To change the colour of Texture Paste I find using alcohol INk the best way. Since the Alcohol evaporates only leaving the dye behind your paste is not watered down like it would be if you use a water based ink such as re-inkers of distress ink.
