Just wanted to show you my cute new stamp by Hero Arts, and show you the difference that changes in colors can really make in the look of a card. The first card is my favorite. I like the softer look. I used the same cute "Tweet" pp by Fancy Pants on both cards. You can tell by the pp that the true colors of the cards aren't showing up exactly anyway. Something about my camera. I'm clueless....Oh well, on one card I stamped with a lighter blue chalk ink, and on the second, I stamped with a darker blue Brilliance pigment ink. Of course, as you can see, there are other differences in the cards such as the embellishments, but I think the choice of ink makes the biggest difference. So go and get your inks and a fav stamp and see if you can't come up with some different looks. Let me know if you do. I'd love to see them!
Btw, keep watching my blog. We will be having a blog hop challenge very very soon at The Attic. It should be lots of fun, with some blog candy for you, of course!
Also, if you haven't signed up for our ATC swap, today is the LAST DAY to sign up. Remember, this month everyone is making 4 cards - 2 with a Valentine theme and 2 with the theme Sassy Sayings. We have quite a few swappers and beginners are welcome. So if you are interested, stop by and look under Swaps for more info!
A reminder, there is still time to win all that awesome blogcandy from Never Enough Rubber Stamps (go back a couple of posts and have a look at it here!). If you participate, you will also be making a lonely person happy by thinking of them with a card. I will be sending my cards this weekend (I hope).
Before I close, I will brag on myself because I added a new gadget to this blog - a slideshow of my lo's, cards, and altered items. The reason I am proud of myself is that I had trouble adding it, and finally got it to work! Yay! But I am disappointed, cause I wanted to have one of those cute slideshows that open like a book. In fact, I have one on here on a post made a year or so ago. Didn't know how to move it to gadgets. Oh well, I'll think about it tomorrow....... lol
