Something mellow

Hello again!

Today I have something a little more mellow - no black! A little amazing, no?

I *love* this stamp from Third Coast, but then I love all the stamps I get from Val. If you've never gone to see her offerings - do!
Once again I was lured by the Distress Inks, they are very easy to blend using Tim's blender. The only problem I have is remembering not to put the edge down first - I'm working on it. Some days are better than others, this time I didn't get any hard edges (woohoo!).

Thanks for visiting!

Recipe: Bamboo Post stamp from Third Coast, background paper from DCWV, ribbon from my stash, Distress Inks & blender, white embossing powder, 'Journey' is from another stamp by Rubber Stampede (partially inked)

This is SO soft and beautiful! I love it madly.(Even if it doesn't have a stampire's favourite colour: black of course, heehee.) The look you got with the distress inks & blender is stunning. I always put the edge down when I use alcohol inks & the blender. I didn't realize that was my problem; thanks! :o)

This is such a beautiful card! I love the softness of it! I'm with you, I love the stamp too! Best, Curt

Love this card - it's very suttle... You are right with the distress inks - swirl before you twirl.... I love that the inks stay "open" for 10 minutes...
