It's a Color Combo Swap with FS friends


Hi! Our Florida Stamp Group is doing a color-combo swap taken from Embellishmagazine.com. Definitely not colors I would choose to use together!

So where to start? I'm still in the "using old stuff" mode, so out came the Tria Inks and glossy cardstock. Anyone remember those Tria Inks which came out long before Tim Holtz thought of creating alcohol inks?

This sunny background was created with my Tria Inks in magenta, orange, lime green and a silver Krylon Pen, in a technique we called "polished stone" (back in the day LOL).  Even the Sun stamp is old, old, old from The Artful Stamper in California. I'm happy to see they are still in business. It's stamped in another old old item - Sepia Brown Memories Ink. The green isn't showing up particularly well, but everything else is. The "new thing" on the card is Sparkle N Sprinkle Evening Glow glitter adhered with Brushable Glue to make it stay put.

(To see the details better, just click on the photo.) As the verse claims, "It's the small things in life that are the most precious." Ahhhh, that includes using OLD STUFF in the craft closet. :-)
Thanks for stopping by!
hugs,

OMG1 I forgot all about Tria -- I have a box full and the colors are as luscious as your sample. Did they go out of business? Beee-ooo-tiful card!
