Dying with Ink Refills

For this months Training we 'Paper Angels' were taught some techniques of dying the beautiful flowers in the Pretties Kit (pg 114 in the 08-09 Idea Catalogue), ribbon and tags... We did these three beautiful 6in X 6in pages... I liked them so much that I've decided that I will use them in my own scrapbooking... Which is 12 X12 so I added 2 of them to a page... with a bit of the Baroque Motifs (pg 98) swirly stamp in each corner...

Our Challenge this month was to go home and use some of the techniques we learned to create our own version of scrapbook pages... I had a little time this week and decided to play and I created these.. These pages are great to use half a 6X4 photo in.. you can get them printed 2 to a 6X4 photo these days... and it should cost the same as 1 photo... so not only do you save on money that way it is a great idea for a mini album.. Like a granny brag book.. or a Hens night memento... something the kids can take to school for show and tell... Priceless memories!!!!

I used the re inkers (pg130-131) to put colour on my Brayer (pg 150) then I rolled it onto the Happiness stamp (pg92).. this gives the rainbow effect... I used the re inkers to put some colour in a snaplock bag with some water to colour the ribbon, the tags and the flowers... I used the Sticky Strip to do the Dazzling Diamonds border (both on pg 148)... And then I accented a few things with Crystal Effects (pg 194)... I so love the Pretties Kit!!! I love the bling.... It's so much fun!!!!!

* Hint if you print your photos in black and white you can use any colour combo!!! They will all go with black and white... Yeah....
