Today I made a card for the Mod Squad Blog Challenge which was to use markers on stamps to do the inking on your card designs. So I used Zig clean color markers to add ink directly to the solid images on this stamp set that I got for a birthday gift. I only know that it is from The Greeting Farm and when I looked up the website for them it was not listed so I am assuming it is retired. But I love the sentiment particularly and think it is a good idea for all of us to remember and implement.
I used my MISTI of course so that I could get great impressions and did the images several times. My card stock of choice was from Gina K. Designs and I used White and Black Onyx. I also used Gina K. Designs pattern paper which is from the Petite Patterns set. And, the beautiful sheer satin fancy ribbon in the gold and black is also from Gina K. Designs. After I had stamped my design I took the small double stitched rectangle die from Gina K. Designs to cut it out. And, then I did a layer of black using the Gina K. Designs large single stitched rectangle die. When layered together it gave just a hint of a black border which I find always to look so wonderful on cards.
I assembled all the layers onto the base card of white card stock and was very happy with the outcome. I love all the polka dots on that design too.
Well, this is just a simple design today but since it is so hot I decided this morning to do a cake as we were all out. Yes, believe it or not! All the birthday cake is now consumed. 😊 I did it the easy way today. I took a yellow cake mix and mixed according to the package and then added two cups of fine chopped rhubarb. Over the top I sprinkled a sugar/cinnamon mixture and then baked it like usual.
Well, thanks for all your sweet comments. I appreciate each and every one of them.
