Good morning. I have been up since about 4 am this morning, so I decided to come down to my crap room and play. I looked at today's challenges on Splitcoaststampers and thought it was the perfect opportunity to get inky! First I played along with the mixability challenge, which today is to use glue or gel medium and inks, paints, gelato's or re-inkers. I decided to use my gel medium mixed with a drop of melon mambo re-inker. It is a bit too bubble gummy for me and I wish I had used a different color, but oh well. I also used a new (to me) stencil from Memory Box. It is quite intricate and I think I was a little rough putting down my gel medium over the stencil, as my coverage is not great, but I guess it adds to the overall design. I added the black scallop strips to tie in with the black sentiment and thread. It is quite glossy in real life, but my photo doesn't capture it. It took quite a bit of time to dry, so while I waited for that, I played along with the free for all challenge too!! That post will be up next. Enjoy your weekend!!
