I'll never be an alcoholic....

Alcohol INKS that is. I just can't seem to get the hang of them. I've have spent so much $$$ on the inks, the tools, the accessories and just can't get the look I think it should have. The background is what I tried at Christmas. It wasn't working & I chalked it up to the wrong paper. But, then I tried on metal (where AI are SUPPOSED to work) and still couldn't get the look I wanted. I'm not giving up. Yet......

A Tree Grows HERE!

I think this may be my favorites ATC of the last several months. And, I joined on a whim 'cause Margo was having problems filling this swap. It's an Old/New Swap. We're supposed to combine something new w/something we've had a while. This is VERY OLD paper I bought during my Chatterbox Obsession! I have sheets & sheets of CB paper & never seem to use it on anything. The stamp set is a brand new one that Scott ordered for me for Christmas. Love how it turned out!

Queen for a day?

For Kristy's Kings & Queens and Prince & Princess swap. I knew I didn't have any stamps of anything wearing a crown but I knew I had a crown stamp. I love the way this ATC turned out. But, I did find I did have a frog wearing a crown stamp. I still like this image!!!

Paris Anyone?

For Kristy's Places ATC Swap. I SWEAR I will never stamp on transparencies again! This was such a pain but I loved how it turned out. I think it was the combination of new Stazon pad, clear stamps and the detail of the stamp that made this such a problem. I had to make something like 30 tries to get 10 decent images.
