This one that sanded background came to me via the PIF threads but will have to look it up to remember who. not sure on the color anymore either. the long time friend was colored a long time ago, just die cut it with an nestibilities label 4 die and inked the edges with creamy brown fluid chalk ink. the ribbons also from the now dead pif ribbon swap thread if i remember right the color was called Mellon but i no longer remember who sent it to me, that printed paper is Karen Foster's almond cookie. this one 6 inches Square in real life.
Hydrangea's the purple ish cs is almost amethyst and the mat is an piece of bazzill. (stamped on neenah solar white)
Now this stamp i recently "won" but, this is an image Jan sent me a long time ago, its cardbase is Papertrey Ink's spring moss.
This is for Trinity because she asked... these are blending stumps. tightly wound pieces of paper that you dip into a blending solution and rub on an image colored with pencils, some people use odor less mineral spirits some use baby oil. ( i don't use either. Ive tried the odor less mineral spirits but, its one of those things the fumes give me an instant headache plus i would have to use them upstairs and so coloring standing bent over a counter height table with your nose in the fumes is a deal breaker) personally i tend to reach for an Prisma colorless blender marker to melt pigments with when i feel so inclined to do so, I've also used the pencils with no pigments to burnish things... that's a little messier as you have to brush off your wax crumbs as you are doing it so when you color curled up on the sofa with an ott light overhead its easiest to do the less risk of a mess type things... :) so anyways, yep, i do have more cards done and will wonders never cease i have them even photographed and not posted yet.... they were not feeling the same as these so they will have to wait till later.
