It's week six, the last week for Kistin's Summer Of Color Challenge and it has been a blast!! I have loved it all, from the color challenges, to her videos (I was so excited to see what color her nails were going to be each week as much as the art she created:), and to all the very clever, creative and amazing entries! THANK YOU Kristin for a most artful 6 weeks-you ROCK girlfriend!!

In going through things in my art room and purging clothing and books too I came across a stamp pad I hadn't used in a long time. I decided to revisit an old technique and share it with this card:
I used this inkpad:
It is still available along with reinkers:)
How to: All you need is a stamp image, glossy card stock, and a few dye ink pads! Ink up your image(s) using the resist ink pad and stamp onto the glossy card stock. Allow it to completely dry-very important!! It will be a bit difficult to see the image as the resist ink has no color. Once it's dry sponge some dye inks over the whole card. The stamped areas will stay clean and white. I think this is a simple but lovely effect! I do hope you'll give it a try.
Linking this to the Simon Monday Challenge Blog (theme is - "anything goes").
I'll be visiting you over the next few days to see what you've been up to. Thanks so much for all the comments you have been leaving-I so appreciate it!
