Getting Inky...

I got inky yesterday with some Alcohol Ink, Distress Ink & Distress Stains... always a good time :) I had a small group for our Canvas Class Sat. afternoon, but we had a great time! As I had interest from people who couldn't make it this weekend, we'll definitely be rescheduling this one- watch for the new date on our calendar!

I decided to demo the techniques using some fall colours & shapes, and after the class I put it together on a tag (so I could enter it into the current challenge to make a tag over at Scrapbooker's Paradise). It's pretty much all Tim Holtz goodies here... I used one of our new ribbons (we got 40 new spools in the store this week!) with Distress Stains to coordinate perfectly with my project, and you can also see a gorgeous lacy copper ribbon that is new along the bottom of the tag. So pretty! Autumn is my fave season and the quote on this stamp really grabbed me... it's kinda where I'm at right now, where fears and dreams intercept! Anywho, enough rambling- I hope you like my tag! It'll probably make it's way onto a tag front, or canvas or something, eventually...
I also wanted to share with you what my amazing students created- aren't their colour choices fabulous? I was telling them that I would add some contrast if I made the project again, and I just adore the colours they chose!

Here's Marianne's:

Hope you like them and are inspired to get inky sometime soon!
