New stash play around

Just had to try out some new things i bought today.

This is the result.
I used stampbord square
clear butterfly stamp
black stazon
Pentel Hybrid white gel pen
Adirondack alcohol inks - stream,wild plum and pearl mixative + blending solution
memory foil tape

The memory tape wasn't the best but it was my first time using it so not worried , will just need practice

Hope you like my first attempt - it was fun :)

Looks incredible to me ...but I am so uninventive with materials...
I love your dark side blog though..I can see my moon fairy being raked out and altered a little ;) thanks for the inspiration. I have downloaded one of your freebies too for a vinatge session :)

Wow June this is gorgeous, I love it well done you.
All I have done so far is play with my alcohol inks and do some samples so I know what the colours look like lol

I love the way the butterflies stand out against the gorgeous plum and purple background!

I have now nominated you for an award! It's here: Thanks for always taking the time to come by and visit my blog. I so want to get in on one of your "Darkside" challenges! Hopefully I'll get a chance to soon. xoxo Serena

Wow June, this is fantastic! I love AAIs (but only if others use them *lol*) and I really really love your background and the beautiful butterflies on it! All fits so perfectly together!
Love, Sylvia

Hi June, Glad you like stream, its such a pretty shade. I have found a new brand of A. inks which are very different colours and work well in conjunction with the ranger ones. These colours are like paint shades, clean and bright.25cc bottles. They are labelled "ZIG kurecolor refill ink"
and cost £3.84 each. Got 30% off in the sale and am well pleased with them. Thoughtyou'd be interested in trying them.
I love your new work. You are so clever.
Have a Very Happy New Year.
Love, Mayxx

Thanks June, finally got there, but not sure how. Its just me being a twit when it comes to computers. I should remember that the router always needs resetting before I try to upload. It doesn't matter on Trimcraft, I know how to fix that but blogger stores things differently and its just remembering how to find them.
Shame about your craft shop. I would really miss my 2 favourite shops if they closed.
Love, Mayxx

Would love some of these A inks... these colours are still learning with them but that's a good excuse to buy some isn't it???!!!
Butterflies are brilliant... real nice project!
