Alcohol Inks and Yupo Paper

Happy Saturday!  Beautiful afternoon!  Here's another card I created for our stamp camp.

The Papertrey Ink feathers are die cut from Yupo paper.  After placing several drops of alcohol ink and extender onto a craft sheet, I smooshed the feathers in the ink until the Yupo paper is fully covered.  The alcohol inks only take a few minutes to dry on this polypropolene paper.  You can also drop the inks on the paper and watch it magically swirl around!  So fun to use!  I'm going to submit this card to Simon Says Wednesday Challenge Anything Goes.

Happy Father's Day!

A couple of weeks ago, my friend Karen and I hosted a stamp camp at my home.  We had a great time with fellow stampers and they enjoyed our projects.  Here is one of my projects using Penny Black's Hot Rod set.

We used Tim Holtz's copper and gold stain by putting stain directly onto the stamp.  There are several sentiments in this set which I love.  The edges were distressed with a distressing tool and edged in Antique Linen distress ink.  The gear dies are from Cheery Lynn.

I'm going to enter this card in the Simon Says Challenge Anything Goes.
