Thanks for stopping by! I hope you enjoy the hop at the
 7 Kids College Fund Store Blog!!

Here is my first background page. I first started by rubbing my vintage photo ink across my mat and then spritzing it with water. I ran my paper through it two times to make these wonderful blends.
Then I stamped the crackle image onto my paper using Staz On ink.


For my next page, I used the same technique with the faded jeans ink. I don't have any yellow distress ink, so I used my yellow alcohol ink. I put a few drops of yellow alcohol ink and a few drops of alcohol blending solution onto my applicator and just dabbed it onto my paper. When it was dry, I stamped the music notes using Staz On ink. I then, crinkled the paper all up and ran my tea dye ink over the raised edges, spritzed with water, and dried. I did redo this page to add the other stamp to it. I also handmade the flower using Tim Holtz Tattered Florals die and then dabbed it with silver alcohol ink.

  45. WOW Jackie - another awesome card. You amaze me that you find the time for crafting and get it all done. I have been in a real slump lately. I'm stressing out over Andrew's Algebra (in fact, I'd really appreciate your prayers that we can find a good tutor for him). Thanks SO MUCH for sharing your wonderful cards in our challenges, it means SO much to me. Hope you're all doing well.
    Blessings,
