Friends Forever

Boy I totally missed yesterday, things got busy around here and I totally forgot. Plus I never got to stamp at all yesterday. Well today the weather in Central MN has been awful. Snow, then rain, then back to snow, rain. ISHY day for-sure here, so I stuck close to home and did some stamping. Roads are really bad, we had lots of roll overs in the area, the police scanner was just buzzing all day with accidents, roll overs, ones going in the ditch. We get nice weather and clear roads for a few days and everyone forgets how to drive in this stuff.
Anyway, I designed my own sketch today, don't have it drawn up yet but this is how my sketch turned out. If I can figure out my program I will do up a sketch for you all to see and hopefully some of you will try it and share with me.

Supplies needed:
Bashful blue, Basic Black and White card stock
Black Stazon ink pad
Bashful blue ink pad
Colored Pencils & Q-tips
Black Gel Pen for going around the card
Stamp of choice
black ribbon


Cut White card stock at 8 x 9" fold in half so you have a card that is 4 x 9". Cut a black piece at 4 x 9" and add to the front of the card. Cut bashful blue at 3 6/8 x 8 6/8". With bashful blue ink stamp dots or a background on the bashful blue piece and mount to the black.
Stamp image on white card stock and color in with gamsol and colored pencils. My image piece is cut at 5 1/4 x 3 7/8". Layer on a black piece of card stock cut at 5 1/2 x 4 1/8". Layer this on your dotted bashful blue piece on the card.
Next with bashful blue card stock and bashful blue ink, stamp dots like you did for the other piece. This piece is cut at 1 1/2 x 3 6/8". Mount this to black cut at 1 3/4 x 3 6/8". Tie black ribbon around this piece and add to card on the left hand side. With black gel pen and a ruler draw a line around edge of card. You can see how to add your pieces by my sample.
Hope you all had good weather and a nice day. Happy Monday!

When you say you use Gamasol can you please explain how this is used. I use colored pencils and then the liquid blender but I seen gamasol at the LSS yesterday and was wondering how it was used

Hi TA, I hope you see this message. The gamsol works like a blender. The best way I can tell you is to go to
or this one has a video on it and it is really helpful and good.
Hope these help and will answer your question.
