One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

MIM # 152 Layered Dye & Pigment Inks

Over at Capture the Moment , Heather Nichols has a video showing this technique of layering dye ink over pigment ink,also known as velveteen stamping.
I took the Polka dots Basic II set and stamped it up the page using white pigment ink.
Then using winter wisteria, spring rain, and spring moss, I stamped the Beautiful butterflies.
you can see the dots come through the dye ink...a nice soft look to the butterflies.
I had a great weekend watching my 12 year old granddaughter play volleyball at the San Jose convention center this last weekend.  There were 149 teams in the 14 and under division.
Her team took 4th place!
We took a tour of Santa Clara University...and had to have a picture on the court.
As a team we also walked the Stanford campus.
I loved watching her play and step up her level of play!
Now I need to catch up on my sleep!!
Heart Hugs,
