We have another Design Team Member inspired challenge at TGIF this week.  This time, our very own Tami Hewlett has challenged us with Ink Blending.  Well, if ever there was a challenge with my name on it...................!  To play along with us this week at TGIFC283 just click on the banner below.

I love ink blending so much that I always have a hard time deciding what colours to work with.  I have a good friend celebrating a birthday today (and I didn't send a card - arghhhhh!) who loves cats.  I also wanted BRIGHT, so this card is for her, if a little late!

I used an ink blending brush to blend the following Stampin' Up! colours to create this fun and bright sky: So Saffron, Pumpkin Pie, Melon Mambo into Gorgeous Grape.  I also spattered a tiny bit of water on the colours and immediately mopped up with a paper towel before finishing with a few white spots using a White Gel Pen.

I used Stampin' Blends to colour my cats and I fussy cut those out although Stampin' Up! do have a set of matching dies for those of you allergic to scissors lol.  I was really tempted to add some bling but I am quite proud of the fact that I didn't!  Why do I always want to add more??!

Do you think "I could never colour like that"?  You are not alone!  I have many friends that feel that way.  When a stamp set comes out that takes you breath away AND you don't have to colour in, well, you have to have it, right?  This months class will make you feel like Picasso without having to colour a single image! The All Things Fabulous stamp set from Stampin' Up! is our core product this month and consists of layered stamps that do all the work for you.

Every month, Alisa and I release a new PDF full of ideas for you.  You get six classes featuring the same core stamp set, 3 from each of us, in PDF format.  This class can be purchased no matter where you live in the world and be done in the comfort of your own home.  If you missed any of our past classes, you can find them HERE.  We love that so many of you want to do our classes!  Thank you!

Once you check out, please read the download instructions carefully as you will be redirected to the PDF.
