Good morning crafters! It is so quiet in my house this a.m., the kids finally went back to school. You should have heard my son groaning about it this morning! It's so nice that Lara loves school. Hopefully that lasts for a few more years.
Today I have a card for you using Crafter's Companion's Swalk Happy Holidays stamp set as my main image. It's been years since we've skated at the local ice rink... I think we'll go sometime this Summer when it gets really hot :)
I colored the image with Spectrum Noir and inked around the scalloped paper.
I also added a bit of lace under it for a little texture.
To make my pearls match my colored image, I added Spectrum Noir alcohol ink refills to them.
Here's a before and after picture that shows the color change a bit better.
Using refills means you won't have to buy all different color pearls if you don't want to. Just add whatever refill color you like to them and your project will all match perfectly to your colored stamp. I also added a few flowers and a sentiment sticker from my stash to complete my card.
Thanks for stopping by today. Between Spring Break with the kids, Easter, and my birthday yesterday (April Fool's baby), we have been going nonstop. We managed a trip to Vegas to see friends, saw all the grandparents, hosted Easter, saw the Croods, Oz the Great and Powerful, and The Host (awful don't see it) and had a few play dates. It was a fun week and a half :)
