Happy Wednesday! Deskers the link up for this blog hop starts here at our hostess Julia's blog. (where you can see what everyone else playing along this week was up to)
I had received this in the mail on monday night and ( I did not make any time to play just carried the box up stairs and cut it open on tuesday. decided I should see what they do real quick with cold water after reading to use warm water because, there really wasn't that much time to play so, I grabbed a previously water colored with derwent art bars card front, sprayed it with cold water and stuck my fingers into that pot for the tiniest pinch of powder to "poof" over the water. it looked pretty cool for a minute or two then I picked up the card and the water ran which ever way it wanted to ( together) so. then I had more blue on my fingers than the wc card haha. so, I grabbed a baby wipe. didn't touch it, use the purell also no go. finally went in the house and soaked them in some dish water for a while to get rid of the smurf effect.
In the background is an charlie brown type tree stamp I found at a yard sale last weekend. with some sentiments I have used recently. ( a cuppa joe) , off to the left is a really cute old snowman die from sizzix (also from the yard sale) made a card using it but, have not posted it anywhere yet. towards the top is a SU butterfly diecut, June borrowed my dies and cut some for me while she was at it so, I left one out to remember to play with them. I think I am mostly OK with what I have made so far for the booth and I will most likely be doing gathering and such type things this next week.
