What Do You, With all those Backgrounds and Scraps....................... We All Need Tags For Birthdays, Thank you 's and Little Gifts.

 Good Morning Crafty Friends, I do hope your staying well. I love making backgrounds but sometimes they mount up and I don't want to make a big project, or I only like a certain part of the background. I had received a Gell Press for Christmas, SO I HAD PLENTY TO CHOOSE FROM. Well with Christmas over and a year of birthdays coming up, I decided to make some tags, for all those little gifts I will be sending. Here's a small collection I made.  Products Any Scraps, Back Grounds etc.....

Using Your Dye Based Ink To Blend, using Concord and 9th Inkpads (Clean and Simple)

 Hi There Crafty Friends, I do hope your all keeping well, today I decided to see how blending my dye inks would turn out. I always used Strathmore Bristol Smooth Cardstock, as it is great for blending (due to it being so smooth). So I pulled out my blending brushes and inks and this is what I came up with. I was so impressed with the beautiful blend I achieved. I had to share it with you all.
