Purple Twilight, Raspberry, Sailboat Blue, and Metallic silver make a pretty combination. Like a storm of colored clouds swirling together to make the Perfect Storm. I put these colors on a piece of cotton and then swirled them around on glossy paper. Drops of color were added directly on the paper and then swirled around by a cotton ball. I then stamped a rose print using Black Stazon Ink which I then highlighted using Black Stazon Ink with Lavender Stickles. I then guarded the rose with butterflies each in their own color. There is Watercolor blue, Fruitpunch, Icicle, Turquoise to just name a few. Stickles were perfect for this project because of the fine tip that the bottle has makes the direction and distribution of the glitter glue more controllable.

Mother's Day is just around the corner. Let me know if you would like to make a similar card or would like to purchase one of the cards I am showing on this blog. Sometimes it is just fun to take out your inks, mix them together and see the color combinations that are attainable. (Hint: And if you make a mistake or don't like the color you have ended up with just keep adding more colors and eventually the color on your paper will be perfect for your project.)

Next time -- Using Liquid Pearls... Do you live in Chandler, AZ, contact me regarding my next class where you can make a similar card to the ones above.

Thanks for posting on my blog. In answer to your question, The exercise lady was one stamp which had the saying on it already. The Copic markers are pretty expensive, over $5 so I wait till I get a 30% off coupon then it's about $3+ I like working with Copic, but it may take a long time to get the whole set. sigh....

Is the purple and blue alcohol inks Tim Holtz's stuff? I like his dabbers very much and have used them alot. Always like to see what you are up to...keep up the good work....Are you on Facebook yet, I got my etsy store linked to facebook and sold some cards today....was I ever excited...yay!
