And Finally – project number 6 – yep sneaked another one in! This project features the Tea Tree by Crafty Individuals.

That gives this lovely soft blended look. (more…)

We spend a fabulous two hours playing with Alcohol Inks, Memento Inks and Distress Inks to teach her some inking and stamping basics and give her a chance to ‘try before you buy’ and decide what inks were best for her – (I’ll share a few snippets of our creations later this week).
