Valentines Day

Supplies: Fabriano Mediovalis square notecard, Blush Rose and Chestnut Roan fluid chalk ink by Clearsnap, French Flair BG by SU!, Birds and Nests stampset by Cavallini, and sentiment from Out on a Limb stamp set by Papertrey Ink.

I saw a card done up on Mama Dini's Stamperia that caught my eye. Reverse masking, sponged ink and then stamps. I wanted to do something simple and elegant for my dear boyfriend for Valentine's Day, and this is what I came up with.

I started out with a Fabriano notecard and made a freehand mask out of a cheap piece of cardstock and tacked it down with Tombow removable adhesive. I used cheapo makeup sponges and sponged the Blush Rose ink onto the card, then inked up my stamps and randomly stamped before removing the mask. Then I stamped the sentiment and viola! Done.

Twin sammich

We went to Re-enactor Fest 4 in Chicago this weekend. This is where I ended up Saturday night at the Re-enactors Ball! I met these two girls (twins) and we became pretty quick friends. Thanks to these dolls for helping me with curling my hair and putting on makeup! (I don't normally do those things....but it was a Ball we were going to!) So much fun!

I will likely scrapbook this soon!
