Camo Knight

A quick note. I received my Tuxedo Black Memento ink pad from Pez-A-Doodle and had to try it out. I used it on both of these cards. Result? No smearing while I was using my COPIC markers! I like the blackness (as apposed to the purple tinge of some blacks.) and the coverage was really good, not splotchy or light. It worked great! This may just become my favorite black ink pad, replacing my Black Onxy by VersaFine. Now, on to the cards!

I really like this Camouflage technique! Troy was invited to a dual birthday party on Saturday. The party was for a boy and a girl, both live in our neighborhood. So I needed two cards. Since I had already this finished Camo background I used it with this new
knight stamp set I have from Sweet & Sassy Stamps.

Stamps: Knight in Shining Armor (S&SS); Ink: Tuxedo Black (Memento), Paper: Old Olive, Sahara Sand, Going Gray; Accessories: brads (SU), COPIC markers, bleach, cotton ball.

For the girl's card I reached for my Dreams & Dragons (SU). It is quick and simple. I love being able to use my Nestabilities to make quick layers.

Stamps: Dreams & Dragons (SU), Ink: Tuxedo Black (Memento); Paper: Pixie Pink, Whisper White; Accessories: Nestabilities, COPIC markers.

I just thought I'd take a moment to show a picture of my son today. He stayed home from school because his stomach hurt. Good thing I decided to go ahead and keep him home, he was sick. He very rarely ever gets sick like this. He asked to take a nap, but didn't want to go up to his room so I put the blanket over him, leaving a peeking hole so he could continue to watch TV. He didn't last too long before he was out. Hopefully, he'll be feeling a lot better in the morning.
