StazOn by Tsukineko applied with daubers
As I said yesterday, Tsukineko USA is coming out with new ink pad colors. We used them in John Petersen's class yesterday . . . here's the swatch from each one as prepared by Deb at the store.

Away we went . . .

the tops of the Fireworks bottles.
John has applied his recipe of inks to the stamp (above),
and now he's spraying the stamp with
Here was a 'bonus' technique . . . using an Elizabeth Craft Designs' peel-off that was applied to a white card stock tag, John colored the egg with Memento markers. Once he was finished with the coloring, he poured a small amount of Goosebumps on the egg and spread the Goosebumps all over
using a sponge dauber.
you take your Fantastix applicator and drop
some; All Purpose Ink on your palette;
in this case, John used the Vega Gold.
When your palette is ready, spray with
Tsukineko's Ink Potion No. 9 so thecolors begin to run.
You then smoosh the colors around on your palette so they cover the entire surface of the palette. Then drop and smoosh your white card stock onto the palette . . . and voila!
So I don't overwhelm you with photos and I don't do a face-plant onto my keyboard because my eyelids have become very heavy all of a sudden, be sure to catch the next posting that will include more of what we learned from John on Saturday.
Remember . . . Wednesday afternoon, from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. at Art 'n Soul, we'll have the new Memento colors in the prototype ink pads and marker pens for you to see and play with. And I'll show you a couple of examples of the new m'Bossing folders from Spellbinders that I brought back from CHA.
John is returning to Art 'n Soul on Saturday, April 14, for another creatively fun class that starts at 12:00 noon. Students from Saturday's class signed up for his next class before they left the store . . . and before we had a date, time and cost confirmed! If you want in on the fun, you need to call the store at 360.357.6820 or come into the store to sign up asap.
And we send our wishes for safe travels home to Marj; she returns from visiting her dad in Illinois tomorrow on an unnamed airline flight. She's anxious to see everyone and catch up!
A final note . . . I really want to thank those of you who take the time to let us know you are reading the blog and enjoy some of the information that's posted. Any and all feedback is certainly welcome and appreciated! Thanks!
