Beate's Challenge Revisited!!!

I seem to need some inspiration from Beate in order to stamp. Not really, but I always fall for her challenges!! This by far, is not my favorite thing I have every stamped, but I think it came out OK. The Lockhart strawberries are the Stamp of the Month at Ellen Hutson LLC. Check out the little kit she has all put together.

I used True Thyme for the card base, then ran a piece of Sahara sand through my "faux cuttlebug" aka Sizzix. DTP with Tim Holtz distress pad. The patterned paper is from the big MME pack found at Costco. I added three Primas with distressed brads to finish it off.

I am quickly falling in love with the Palette Hybrid inks. NO BLEEDING what so ever!! If you look at the close up of this pic, you'll see that my color leaves nothing to be desired. I tried coloring with reinkers and an aquapainter. Either I need help, or I need to choose a different paper. But make note...the Hybrid Ink DID NOT bleed!!! So far, every paper, with every medium I have tried so far, has given superior results!! Joy and Ellen both carry the essential colors in their stores

Guess what? I already have something ready to go for tomorrow. Don't fall over and faint. I know what you are thinking...two posts in a week, something must be wrong!!
