I made this one for a card sketch at an SBS group I belong to, the stamps are from Artful Inkables, colored with Copics.

Dream Cat

Still playing around with my ink pads & sponges, trying to get familiar with my various colors, came up with this one. Almost wasn't going to post it as hubby didn't think it was all that, the more I looked at it, I started liking it, not my favorite but I do like it. I realize I could've used better placement but who's perfect eh......LOL

Love Flowers

I've had this Penny Black stamp for over 10 years, the year on it is 1998, bought it long before I had my Copics so of course I had to give it a try. That little guy/girl is just so adorable

Tree House

This is a set from Artful Inkables & I am having a fun time with it. Happy little stamps with some of the sweetest sayings.

Potted Tulips

I'm still playing around with sponges & ink pads, this technique is getting to be just another of my addictions, I can't stop but I sure am having fun.

Brayering & Sponging Inks

I found this great blog with lots of tutorials that I just love, I've been hooked for over a week now trying some backgrounds with my brayer, sponges & ink pads, I'm having way too much fun. Here is the link if you would like to take a peek, this sure is one very talented lady. She is also offering blog candy.

Shopping Friends

I like this silhouette stamp of girls shopping from Artful Inkables, makes a quick card, the saying is from a different set from TAC. I have so many nice papers but don't seem to use them much but I keep buying them.

Starry Night

I was playing around with my alcohol & inks, well I thought I was, couldn't figure why it wasn't working like it usually did. I finally took a good look at the bottle I thought was alcohol, oh no, I was using water.....DUH I like playing with this technique but it sure is messy.

Red, White & Blue

Another little darling from TAC, this came really easy as I didn't have to think about colors, it's for a swap.

Sparkling Stars

I was playing around with inks & alcohol yesterday, came up with this one but it needs something, I'm at a loss, any suggestions would be really appreciated.
