Happy Inside

 I thank God for you sweet, sweet bloggers~

I've had this post sitting on the runway...and she motivated me to go into my cold crafty den/computer area to send this to "publish"...

Check out the texture here from stamping with a pigment ink first and then a dye ink...

I've always loved the look of patterned velvet...and this technique reminds me of it!

I am so grateful for the inspiration and support that comes from this wonderful cardmaking bloggy world....

you are the best~ ;)
