Hello Summer

This is an experiment-and I really don't like how it turned out. Since I liked how Souffle pens made dots and colored small areas-I wondered how they would work on larger images. So I stamped some larger flowers and a few other items from Great Impressions. I wont be doing this again with these pens other than the few cards I made this week. The ink doesn't fill in very well as you can see when you click on the photo.

I colored in the flowers with two different pens and when dry, I outlined them with a black micro pen. Then for some sparkle added tiny crystals to the center of each. I lined the back of this with green Bling paper from Bazzill. I also colored in the beach bag and double stamped the sandals and colored them and then pop dotted an image on top of each for some depth. I added crystals to the flowers on these too.
A square of Bling was the base for these images after I distressed the edges with ink and a razor. I also did the same to the phrase block. And to finish it off, I tied a piece of pink jute for the bag closure.

The base card is also Bling and its layered with a scrap of palm tree pattern. I think these pens are okay in small doses but it bled on the plain white card stock and was smeary in places too. N0t a great experiment but you never find out if you never try.

Now I need to get some work done as I am home alone and can make all the noise I want. Plus I need to stay out of trouble with the UAW strike commencing today. There has already been some violence locally-people hurt and property damaged. Not a good time for Michigan in general. How much lower will we sink?

  1. I do love the card, even if it didn't work as well. You can send it to me. I love your blog. The trouble in Michigan sounds bad. I hope all is well for you.


Thank you for stopping by and sitting a spell with me and mine. I hope you take away a smile!
