Hope you're all having a good week. It's bitterly cold here in NH, hope it's warm where you are. I know I won't be leaving the house unless I absolutely have to, so I think I'll be doing some stamping! How about you?
Speaking of some stamping, my friend Janna came over for a visit last night and while the kids were watching some TV, we got to stamp a bit. We both decided to play along with this week's Whiff of Joy challenge, which is to use purple and green and of course a Whiff of Joy image. I just love this color combo, so I knew I had to play! I only have one Whiff image, so I went with Melinda Blowing Kisses.
My purple color is Elegant Eggplant and the green is Mellow Moss. I also used a printed paper from a giant prints pack I have. The ribbons are SU! organdy, grosgrain, and gingham. I also added a Prima flower, button, and piece of wire as an accent. The image was stamped with Versafine ink and colored with Copics. I also added some of my daughters Elmer's glitter glue to her wings. Janna and I both agree that we like this glitter better than Stickles!
I do have a question....which ink do you prefer to stamp your images in when coloring with Copics? I bought Versafine as it's one that's recommended for use with Copics, but I find that it still bleeds/runs when you touch the markers to it. I don't heat set the ink, but I do wait a while for it to dry. Any suggestions?
Well, thanks for stopping by. Hope you have a great Thursday, stay warm! Happy Stamping!!
