Resist practice piece

Welcome to a beautiful, bright and sunny morning here in Surrey, oh what a promise of a warm Spring and Summer to come      -         well we can dream can't we?


I haven't made a card or project for today but I have had a practice for my Stamp Man project for Friday coming. I found this tutorial - http://wn.com/Acetate_and_alcohol_inks which is a resist technique using glossy card DIs and AIs.















I love the colours and the materials I used but the TH birdcage stamp didn't lend itself well to this technique. I will keep it in my 'Inspiration Journal' though as a reminder for a future project. What I did learn is, that next time I try it, I will use black or coloured distressing powder to make the image stand out more.




When I returned from Cyprus I received these fabulous ATCs from The Stamp man ATC swap. My thanks to Torreke, Carol (no blog available) and Anita. I just love them and can see how collecting ATCs from other people can also serve as a source of inspiration for future projects. Yay.

Have a great Sunday, I am going off to potter in the garden and later I will come and visit some of you. If I haven't got to you yet since I have been home, then many apologies but I will soon.
