Fun Technique!

48
Heather Nichols cards
I had my doubts watching Heather's PTI MIM video.  Her cards came out great--not sure I could get the stamping right. However, I totally loved the process & end result--yah!  I suspect the ink & paper have a lot to do with the look you get.  I used Distress Inks tumbled glass & broken china as well as PTI Harvest Gold.  
I'm also playing along with ColourQ as I really love the current challenge colors.  PTI Snowflake Flurries was on my desk, so I didn't even look for other options.  It's one of my all-time favorite sets--so versatile.  I remembered that I have the Friends are Treasures Hero Arts set which I don't think I've ever inked.  I masked off the smaller words & it worked great!  As you can see I really cased Heather using sequins & one of her designs. 
I also used a very neglected corner punch that I thought complemented the images & gave me a way to add a touch a twine.  I'm planning to use this idea with other images & colors for fun, quick & flat to mail cards. Hope you're having a great weekend.

  20. Hello dear friend! I've fallen behind in commenting, but on the plus side, I get to have a 'full dose' of Greta's gorgeous creations, uninterrupted. I love, love and love what you've done with this technique! I tried several times and 'blech'! You, however, have created a magical card...stunning! Swooning over the colours, and the snowflakes are perfect 'bursts of joy' for the Best Wishes sentiment!! Hugs~c (My first comment went all wonky!!)
