Practice Practice Practice

I'm constantly practicing my paper crafting skills! One of those skills is Fun Stampers Journey's Fusion Blending solution and re-inkers coloring system released last year with their 2015-2016 catalog. 

When I first sat down to give them a try, I was terrible at it! I used way to much color on my brush which blurred the stamp lines and made streaks, but with continued practice this is what I can do today. 

Additionally, I tried a brand new technique which was to die cut a shape or sentiment directly from my image and raise area I need more practice in because you can't really read the sentiment. On the above photo I added a white layer of the die so you could see what I mean. 

Next time I plan to use an image that has more white space which should make the sentiment stand out better. 

There's so much fun in playing and learning new techniques! Sometimes you nail it, sometimes you miss. This was a bit of a miss, but I had so much fun with it, I thought I'd share anyway.

So gorgeous! Love the coloring and it most definitely takes practice! It's amazing to see that you have no bleeding even with the black licorice ink...That's masterful! :) Kerry, FSJ Coach #401
