Greeting Inky Friends!!

Today I am sharing a card using Mug Shot as well as 'sneak peeking' a couple new stamps that will become available with tomorrow's New Releases!! So make sure and come back then for the Monthly New Release Blog Hop and SALE! :D

I stamped the background in Versamark and heat embossed Clear Embossing powder. I then sprayed the background piece with Fun Stamping Journey's Silver Color Splash which allowed the embossed part to resist the spray. I added splatters using FSJ SILKS in Silver and Cranberry. I added GLAZE on the Inmate Number for extra dimension.

See you tomorrow for the March Blog Hop!

Happy Creating,
Tonya :)

Hello Inky Friends!

I'm back with another card using a February New Release from Technique Junkies!

The background technique I chose for today's London Eye card is the Glimmer Ink Smash from the Shimmer, Glimmer, Sparkle & Shine CD.  It's so difficult for the camera to catch the shimmer but it really is there and looks gorgeous IRL!! I added the sentiment from American Proverbs on top of some sequin trim, added a few rhinestones colored with Copics and called it finished!

Thanks for stopping by today!!

Until next time, Happy Creating!

If you ARE following along in order then you just came from Jane Bosi's post. Her work is always sure to inspire!!

Now on to my pieces! I chose to showcase  Le Tour Eiffel for both cards for a couple different looks. On this one I used the Soft Sponged Photo Stamp Technique from the Bodacious Backgrounds CD. The sentiment can be found here too!

For the next card, I had create something romantic, right? :) So I used the Versamark ink pad to stamp the entire background onto glossy paper and brayered a few colors of pink inks across the image. I wasn't quite getting the resist I was shooting for but there is a slight ghosting to it in real life. Next I inked up just the Eiffel Tower in FSJ Watermelon True Fusion Ink. I then painted on some glitz using Art Anthology Dazzle on top of the Tower. I used the Mi Bella Sorbet and the Dazzle on the heart in the sentiment Love Without Measure. The fun vellum die cut Doily and Heart Sparkle Drops can be found through me at Fun Stampers Journey.

I hope I gave you some inspiration for this lovely stamp!
