And now some Ink

I've played with stamps for a long time, but only became a serious stamper about a year ago. I had found the clear stamps and really liked how I could accurately place my image. Last fall I bought my Cuttlebug and started making cards. I would have loved to take some classes, but again like so many other places, our local stamp store closed. When I found Papertrey Ink at the beginning of this year, I learned how to combine the two. This is one I completed today, the first to use PTI stamps colored with Copic markers. I'm in love!!



Vintage Picnic was from last month's release and I had to wait for the right markers to arrive to complete it. The paper came in yesterday's mail with my order from the July release. Put it all together and here it is. (Click on the photo above to see better detail) I can't wait for the day when I can sit down and have all the supplies I need to complete my card. I'm ordering hard and fast, but there's always something else I want. I am hoping to be able to participate in this month's Blog Hop. That is the main reason I created this blog. So, stamping friends, stay tuned.
