A little birdy told me ...

... that the Feline Playful "Feline Thankful" blog hop & party is going great! There have already been a bunch of winners announced and there will be even more every day until September 27th. And if you join in the blog hop, then there are chances to win prizes at every stop along the way (including mine! just scroll down to the next post). Then go ahead and check out the party here.

The theme of the party is "thanks" and so I decided to share this thank you card that I made at a Clipper Street technique class (all about stains, inks, mists - lots of messy, inky stuff) earlier this week. It's a bit of a departure for me since there is no stamping and no colouring involved (my Copics felt sooooo lonely). The Maya Road chipboard elements were coloured using a mix of paint, distress stains, and glimmer mist. And I wasn't thrilled with the colour of the lace, so I used distress ink to darken it. Lots of fun playing with new products but my fingers are still stained!

  3. Hi Shelley, your card is amazing and how fun it is to work with all those inks isn't it. Little tip from me for you fingers... little hot water with soda will do the trick on fingers and nails! Works great for me... otherwise I would always have all kind of polish on my nails.

    Hugs
