Blog Candy, Another Tilda and Stamps Happen
Life has been a little hectic the past few weeks but finally getting the blog candy on that I mentioned.
Just love coloring with the Distress Inks and found this nifty container to put my Distress Ink color chart into. Friend Marion pointed out that the lid can be flipped back around to the bottom, so fantastic..... it is out of the way when using the chart. The chart is laminated, so I put a drop of ink onto the appropriate color box. When I'm done coloring, I just flip the lid back over the top and it keeps it ready for me the next time I color. So far the Distress Inks I've left on the chart haven't dried completely, they are just thicker, but no problem, just add a little water. Love working with this set up..... no waste, so handy and the chart shows me the dark and light version of the color.
So for the blog candy celebrating 10,000 hits on my blog, someone can win the Distress Ink container with laminated chart, some stamps and a few flower embellishments. To be eligible, please sign up as a follower if you haven't already and leave a comment. I will ship internationally too! Not necessary to link to your blog, but would love it if you did. I'll leave this open till April 18th at midnight CDT and give the winner 24 hours to respond.
Want to thank you all for coming by to visit and so appreciate the comments, they mean so much to me!!!
Here is another cute little Tilda holding a Dalecarlian horse. The horse originated in Sweden and is a wooden carved toy, traditionally painted red. Where would we be without Wikipedia!!! :)
Magnolia-licious store here.
It's been a little while since I colored this, but believe I used Faded Jeans, Broken China, Tattered Rose, Brushed Corduroy and Frayed Burlap. Punches are Carl and Punch Bunch.
Also here is another card I did with the Distress Inks.
This is a Stamps Happen stamp and I used the Tattered Rose, Chipped Sapphire, Brushed Corduroy, Faded Jeans, Tumbled Glass, Peeled Paint, Forest Moss, Pumice Stone, Fired Brick, Vintage Photo, Dusty Concord, Scattered Straw and Mustard Seed.
Love these little Prima roses (just a little too small for even me to make myself) and added some Punch Bunch ash leaves and some Leone Em maidenhair ferns. Also used the Scor-pal to add lines around the frame.
One more thing, I am doing both Distress Ink water coloring classes and also Floral Punch classes, so if you are in the Minnesota metro area and are interested, please e-mail me for more information about classes.
That's it for today, but don't forget about the blog candy! Enjoy the day!!! Patti Jo
