The class last night was all about re-inkers - using them to make backgrounds, and using them to paint an image on tiles. A good time was had by all. No 2 backgrounds were the same despite using the same colors of re-inkers.
As promised here are some more background samples using the Polished Stone Technique:
Right: Tempting turquoise, Rich Razzelberry, and gold metallic
Bottom: Basic Gray and Silver
Aren't these samples great? We made a mess - be sure to wear gloves and protective clothing and extra paper on the table.- but we had fun.
Some of the students stamped with Black Stazon on their samples, others embossed their images in either silver or gold.
Top Right: Pear Pizzaz, Old Olive, Wild Wasabi, gold metallic
Bottom Left: Rich Razzelberry, Pearl Metallic
Bottom Right: Peach Parfait, More Mustard, Gold Metallic

This card is my own design.
It uses no stamp set, but the message is clear: serve, honour, strength, courage, strong and pround.
The buttons on the ribbon are antique buttons from my collections. They were faux stitched using a sliver of cardstock.
Paper: Always Artichoke, Cherry Cobbler, Very vanilla, Old Olive, Early Espresso
Ink: Early Espresso. All edges of card and vanilla card stock were sponged with this ink to give the card a vintage look.
Markers & a white gel pen were used to write the words
Stamp: Sincere Sentiments
Paper: Rose Red, Certain Celery, So Saffron, Retired designer paper, Whisper White, Pink Pirouette
Ink: Rose Red
Accessories: 5 Petal punch, Boho blossom punch 1/2" round punch, crimper (for leaves), scallop border edge punch, scallop oval punch
Everyone also got a chance to practice their brayering technique before doing on their Halloween card.
