Hey there! Sorry this is going up a little late. I kept getting distracted with all of the pretty things on the internet… and e-mails. Maybe someday I will have an empty inbox… or maybe someday I’ll be able to make enough money to hire a personal assistant. I would much prefer that. Ha!
Here’s the video for today. I wanted to do another video where I tried something new on camera – this time, I tried alcohol inks. You’ll get to see that not everything goes according to plan… ;)
So yeah, less silver mixatives next time! As soon as I did that, I remembered seeing someone (Jennifer McGuire or Tim Holtz, most likely) that said to never use more than a drop or two of mixatives. LOL!
Here’s the finished card. After starting over with the background, this is more of what I was going for and I really love how vibrant it is! I love experimenting with new materials and techniques. That’s what makes life interesting. By the way, isn’t that butterfly die awesome?! I misspoke in the video – it’s actually from Memory Box. Also, make sure you pick up one of those silver Signo Uni-ball pens if you don’t have one yet. They’re awesome a great for adding extra little touches to cards!

Today’s prize pack consists of some lovely things for getting crafty – you can see the product links below if you want more information. The ruler and the craft pick are my absolute favorites, though. You have to have these on your crafting desk! Seriously. The copics are a couple of my favorites that I happened to have extras of, and the Picket Fence Distress Stain is just plain fun. I’m going to have to do a video about that soon.
To enter to win the prize for today, just leave a comment below. If you would like to, tell me what your two must-have tools are. I would love to hear about them! I’m loving your answers from the past two days. I have added several stamp sets to my wishlist. :) Hope you’re staying nice and cool (or warm, depending on where you live!) and are enjoying the week. See you tomorrow for another card and another giveaway!
