Harmony
One last Artistic Outpost card for today (this time I'll link you to their main website instead of their blog). All THREE cards were made with the "Serenity" sheet. Alcohol inks used this time: Ginger, Latte & Caramel (sold together in the "Cabin Cupboard" collection). Keep in mind that glossy cardstock must be used with this technique, along with the blending solution, in order for the inks to "travel" across the paper and combine with each other to create your one-of-a-kind swirly, marbley background. After the background dried completely, I stamped the flourishes randomly across it using Timber Brown Staz-On ink. For the bigger flourish stamped on the white paper I used VersaMagic Chalk Ink in Sierra Vista. "Harmony" was stamped in SU's Chocolate Chip, and I inked the edges of the white piece with Ranger Frayed Burlap Distress. This card sure looks like Fall, but I'm hoping for some Spring Harmony outside! Thanks for stopping by!

Hi Erin! I love looking at all your pretties on your blog. Coincidentally, I've been on that Clear Dollar Stamps Ebay sellers store and have Lori bookmarked as a favorite seller. Cool that you're on her DT!

I can't thank you enough for my PTI birthday RAK and oh so gorgeous birthday cake card. It's so beautiful. I'm just in awe of it!

It's great to be friends with someone the same age as me. Sometimes I feel so much older than other crafters out there. We both are still looking good, although I wish I were as fit as you!!
