SPCC #42 & Sketch Girl #15

Boy it's mighty late and I'm exhausted!! It's almost 1 AM and Jamie comes downstairs asking me if I'm ready for bed. My answer is a big fat no so he asks if I'm still posting. I poked fun at him a bit saying, "That's what bloggers do hunny." because he hasn't posted on his blog for like.. a year? LOL. So here's my card for this week's Sketch Girl #15 and SPCC #42. The main image is using the floating reinker technique which I am doing at this month's workshops. A picture tutorial can be found here. You basically use shimmery card stock, stamp and emboss your image and then spritz water over top to cover the entire card stock. Then take your aqua painter and reinkers and add it to the water and watch it float all over. Super fun and super easy. I thought it needed a bit of something extra so I added the faux stitching and I'm not sure if it was a good idea... I attempted to erase it and lemme tell you, it doesn't work. Why on earth I thought it might even remotely work is beyond me. Anyways I'm off to bed!! G'nite!

Very pretty Sandy! I love your technique, I have only used it to fill an image, and love how it looks on a whole panel. I will have to try that ;o) Your ribbon strips are awesome too. Thanks for playing with us at SPCC!
