Good morning!  Okay, I’ve skipped a few days of my online card class, knowing that I’ll be able to visit them on the weekend.  Since yesterday felt like Thursday and Tuesday felt like Monday, I feel I’m right on track! LOL  After viewing yesterday’s video for Day 8, More Inking and Stamping, I just had to try out making my own ink pad!  Wowzers!  Where have I been?  You can actually buy ink felt to make a fairly good quality ink pad OR if you don’t have these handy, you can use baby wipes!  Eureka!  I have several SU reinkers and so went straight to work creating a rainbow ink pad!  Here’s a photo!

Then I looked through my background stamps and found an old, and I’m sure retired, SU  medallion stamp.  I was a little skeptical as to whether this would work, but it did first try!  I love the batik, worn look.  Forgive me for the same sketch I seem to be falling back on…I will come up with another CAS one at some point…I was just focusing so much on that gorgeous image and didn’t want to cover it up!  Have a great day!

You really seem to be getting the hang of these CAS cards. Love it! I would love to try this technique myself, but I don't have any reinkers, so i'm secretly hoping I will win the reinkers that Jennifer was using for her card.
Otherwise I'll have to go shopping myself. My wish list seems to be growing every day, LOL.
