Wrapping Up Tuesday’s Class and Hitting the Road!

Just finished another class on Tuesday at The Queen’s Ink where we colored up some fun images from House Mouse Designs (Stampendous!). Had a great group in class and I think everyone had fun and learned something new. Next class at the Queen’s Ink will be on Tuesday, April 30th where we’ll be experimenting with faux watercoloring with alcohol inks. You can either register online or call the store at (301) 497-9449.

Tonight, we’re hitting the road, having made a somewhat last minute decision to spend Friday at the Allentown Rubber Stamp & Paper Arts Festival. This will be my first time attending so I’m excited to see all the vendors and new products. My husband — the good sport that he is — will be coming along as well, although I don’t know if he’ll last all day. Hope to see you there and be sure to stop by Photo Scraps’ booth and say hello to Tracy. Tell her Nancy sent you!

Below are the supplies I’ve used for today’s project. All items were personally purchased except those marked with an asterisk (*) . I never share a product I do not like. All opinions are my own. Read more.
