Groovy Presents


The challenge theme at The Stamping Boutique blog is to 'show me the presents'. I decided to use an Ippity itty bitty called Something Groovy. This stamps artwork is by Tracey Malnofski, who is the artist for The Stamping Boutique images. She is also a designer for Unity Stamp Co.! Her images are all fun, and great to color. Speaking of coloring, I used my new Letraset ProMarkers on this one. They are the muted blending set that I ordered from Amazon. That was my first time ordering from there, and was quite pleased. They have some awesome deals! Anyway, I tried to get a tie dyed background by using my alcohol inks on glossy paper, then blowing the ink around by blowing into a straw. Came out pretty good. That's it for me today, hope you had a great weekend!!
