Wow...100 posts!

Gosh, for being a reluctant blogger when I started up, 100 posts came quickly!!

For my hostess club get together this month I decided to do some stamping on fabric with my ladies. This technique was featured in The Angel Company’s supplement that recently came out, Serendipity; and when I saw the cards, I had to run out to Joann’s and buy some white and cream cotton muslin! It’s really not very expensive at all.

I used the sketch on the CPS blog for this week. I’ve never made a long card to fit into a regular sized envelope so this was a real “stretch” for me. (ha ha) I feel like something is missing but I hope you can see the embossed stars on the blue panel. I stamped with Noir palette ink (make sure your pad is juicy – I should have reinked mine in this case!) and then colored in the image with watercolor pencils. The secret trick to blending it all is to use a Dove blender pen. Did you know that The Angel Company carries the Dove liquid refill and tips as well as reinkers for all of the Palette inks?!?

you can't really see my poor cow in this card...it was tough to get a good picture!

Card Materials:
An Udder Birthday, “oh baby” from My Journey, stars (retired)
Paper: Bazzill monochromatic packs
Yellow and Blue
Accessories: Martha Stewart punch, ribbon,
clear embossing powder, buttons, scrappers floss, Dove blender pen and refill/tips
