Faber-Castell Gelatos, Dylusions Sprays and Stamps ~ Just Messing Around


Had a little time so i was messing around with my multimedia "chemicals".  I have no technique!!!  I did learn if I am going to use Ranger Archival Inks with Copic pens to heat set the Archival Inks 1st. The flowers are covering the mud i created before i learned that heat setting was necessary.  Once i learned the "heat set" lesson, I like the look of the Archival Inks better than I like Memento.  It's cleaner and crisper......... It is permanent, so if you do want your stamps to remain pristine the Ranger Archival Ink isn't for you.

Sizzix - Dogwood - Susan Tierney-Cockburn Flower Garden


Sizzix - Poppy - Susan Tierney-Cockburn Flower Garden

Finally some progress!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!




Unhappy with every poppy I had created today, I turned to YouTube and found videos created by CutAtHome...... finally some improvement.  The 2 videos that helped me were:







Ugggggggggh!!!!!!!!! I am not happy with my efforts at ALL!!!




These dies come with very limited instructions..... so lots of experimenting.....  Poppy was my 1st try.  I used just cardstock scraps, flower soft, red and brown ink and Dylusions Ink spritz.


So I wasn't happy with how the 1st poppy turned out........ worked with it a little more...... this flower making stuff isn't going to be easy for me...... I have a lot to learn!!!
