Today’s project covers TWO challenges AND  a new technique video from over on stamp TV that Gina K put up recently!  the technique is really neat though subtle so it was hard to get a photo that did it justice. you start with a piece of alcoho ink polished stone paper – basic alcohol ink application.  use ranger glossy paper and 2-3 colors of alcohol ink with a metallic mixative, dab randomly over paper, add blending solution to your felt piece and dab again.

Next take a stamp that you would normally color in, stamp onto your polished stone using versamark, emboss with black.  finally color in all or part of your image carefully with bleach – some colors bleach out and others don’t so you get a very interesting effect.

The OCC Challenge is to use border punches – how easy is that??  and the CAS19 challenge was a sketch.

and now the project:

Get well set

Get well set

So far the set includes a card, tea bag folder, gift tag, cough drops and a soothing vapor plug in.  i also ordered some eucalyptus handmade bath items that are just gorgeous from RachelRene on etsy and will add those when they arrive.  I URGE you to go check out this shop as she has some GREAT stuff!  Be sure and tell her i sent you over!  BTW etsy is THE greatest place to shop i swear!  if you don’t shop there regularly you really should!

I am trying to get some gift sets together to keep on hand too – would be SO much easier – i have been perusing etsy and picking up things i see here and there and everything is just SO top notch!  i am hoping by the time the holiday season rolls around i will have NOTHING i need to do!

what are your favorite gift set ideas or items??  i would REALLY love to hear some thoughts and ideas for all occasions!!
