New Purchase

This is my new purchase swap for this month on Inkyfunstampers Yahoo Group. I love their swaps. I just purchased 5 Sugar Nellie stamps and already one is missing. They are so beautiful and they really scream "COPICS" to me. This image is called "Fragile Beauty". For the base card I used Co-ordinations and then took a Cuttlebug embossing border and ran it through my Big Shot. Then to take advantage of the core color, I sanded the embossed design til the core showed through.
The image was colored and blended using several markers. Unfortunately I put them away so that I can't tell you which ones I used. I stamped the image with Memento ink onto Neenah 110# paper.
Now it is back to the drawing board. I have 6 more swaps and 4 more sketch books waiting.
I will be gone to Vegas tomorrow and come home Friday and then stay with my sister until we go back to Vegas Monday to pick up her hubby at the airport. Things should be back to normal (whatever that is) by Wednesday. I am really really glad Hubby bought me a laptop for my birthday!!!


  1. Hubby is thrilled and proud to see the miracles you create. How lovely that the laptop helps you spread your magical talents far and wide for the enjoyment, inspiration, (and for some, tutelage,)of so many other folks!

    PS - Tip: To see each card enlarged, and in more detail (and I think, even more beauty), just double-click on its photo.

  2. You might recheck your help forum question. The answer you got might not be right.

  3. OK, Thanks. I am away from home but when I get home, I will try to get more info!
