Hello there! Apologies for the long absence. I was still enjoying the after effects of the holidays and was just lazy to make any cards or posts. :) Did any of you feel the same way? Well, after that long hiatus I needed something to spark my creative mojo. So I turned to Moxie Fab World for some inspiration. I have always loved their Tuesday Trigger challenges. It's sad that I haven't been able to join as much as I did before. But I'm hoping I'll have a bit more time these days. So here's Tuesday Trigger - Sweet Dreams.
I decided to pick up the colors of the inspiration photo as well as the patterned theme going on. Here's what I came up with...
The patterned paper is from My Mind's Eye - Breeze. My new favorite online store is Simon Says Stamp! My only complaint is that shipping takes 2 weeks. :( I think Papertrey Ink has spoiled me because I usually get my packages from them in 3-5 days. Although I usually find everything I'm looking for in Simon Says Stamp, I couldn't find a link to it there. Another MME pad with the same name keeps popping up. Anyway, I got mine at Michael's, by accident actually, I just saw it as I was walking by. My Mind's Eye is my go-to for patterned paper. They are just awesome! :)I don't think I use any other patterned paper as much as I do MME.
Also I wanted to share with everyone something that I've discovered, tried and tested, and LOVE!!!! It's Hero Arts Shadow Inks! By far the best ink I have used! The images dry on smooth and perfect ALL the time! They're specially great for big images that have huge surfaces. Staining is minimal. I have started to collect them and am hoping that they can come up with more colors! So go ahead and give them a try! I'm positive you'll be replacing the inks that you already have with them! :)
Thanks for stopping by! I'll be back again tomorrow for some TCM love. :)
