A Class of Your Own

Hi, I'm about to head out the door to see the dentist.  Urgh...not my favourite thing to do, but well.  Last night I organised my Unity KOM kits from the past few months (which I haven't inked yet), and had to play a little with the stamps.

Here's what I did:


I tried the "thumping" method (my first time) of inking with a marker (darker coloured ink) over a lighter inked stamp image, and I rather like the results.  I must tell you though in 24 hours (since I got back) my desk is already cluttered, and the room looks so messy - just because I needed to find things that I had kept away.  I need to get better at organisation.

I'm submitting this to the Unity challenge - Fashion Forward & Unity's FWF.

Enjoy today!







Stamps : Unity KOM March 2011 (focal image), Unity KOM Jan 2011 (sentiment)
Paper : October Afternoon Home Maker 8x8 pad, GKD cardstock
Ink : Memento Desert Sand, and Memento Marker Rhubarb Stalk, Versafine Vintage Sepia (sentiment)
Others : Brad, Spellbinders Large scallop oval & Double Ended Tags dies, Lace trim, buttons

This is GORGEOUS, Kary! I love it. That is my favourite image from that KOM! You should sign up to do Growing In Unity, or at least put yourself on the waitlist since it's been filled up for this year. ;)
