Hope you are ready for Halloween. Of course I cannot update my blog without the latest photo of the pooch... I made a bunch of treat boxes for the office that were fun & easy to make (used the SU! Itty Bitty Box die for treat boxes shown on the top right). Enjoy!
Okay, I have a great stash of re-inkers now. While I know I won't use 'em up any time soon, I love using them in ways other than just re-inking my stamp pads. Claudia shared this idea awhile ago, but I only recently had chance to try it. I used more than one color on final card. I think I over-inked a bit, but it is a fun thing to practice.
Just stamp & emboss your outlined flower on glossy cardstock, then spritz generously with water. While there are pools of water in your petals, take aqua painter & dab a bit of ink in the pools of water. It can turn out nice with varied tones, although my melon mambo/apricot appeal flower looks pretty solid in photo.

Been busy today... it is world cardmaking day, so did plenty of cards, but also spent some quality time with the pooch, as always. I remembered that it was a year ago this weekend that we lost our first dog, Denali. Gosh, that was a sad and lonely time. I made a card while thinking of her. Hoping new puppy appreciates all the attention we are doting on him today. All my best, K
