do you see all of that texture? and shine? do you see the amazing shimmery rainbow background? and the fabulous copper mesh over top?! don't you wish i could take a decent photo so you could REALLY see how cool it is...and then try to figure out how she did it??! yeah. me too. (sorry, m--i haven't done ya justice!) luckily there's a better image--and complete details--in this post on mari's blog, m'ija stamps!
speaking of "how she did it"...mari, who knows A LOT of very tricky and impressive techniques, is incredibly generous about sharing her knowledge, from answering my (many & often quite silly) questions, to sharing her card "recipes", to making lists of videos and websites i might like. and as if that wasn't enough, in the package with this card, she sent a bunch of her favorite tim holtz stuff for me to try out: grunge board, perfect pearls, fantasy film, ink-blending foam and more! so now i can try out some of the stuff i'm learning before i make an investment in new supplies! can you imagine a cooler or more inspiring gift to arrive as a surprise on a random monday?!
i can't wait to dig in and get started experimenting with my goodies, but first i send an extra big, and extra hearty
♥ THANK YOU!!!!!!!!! ♥
to my very talented and thoughtful friend!!!
