Welcome 2013

Our Set in Stone Sisters business was very successful this December.  Our vintage Knoxville coasters were more popular than I ever imagined!!  Our last day at the crafts fair was Dec 22 and I took two weeks off and concentrated on my first love-cardmaking.
 I bought a Silhouette Portrait for my self for Christmas.  This peacock feather is what sold me on the machine to start with.  The stamp is from Impression Obsession.
 This card was done for an alcohol ink watercolor background swap.  I used multi media paper so the colors absorbed rather than blended but I rather like how it turned out.  The stamp is one I got to use for coasters but I will be using it for cards too.  It is from Stampers Anonymous.
I am not sure which company this little vintage dig came from but  I printed her off quite some time ago.  I used a shimmery text weight paper and colored her with copics.  The background was done using Judikins Mica Gloss, which I bought several years ago when I visited CA.  
Thanks for stopping by and have a good day.

So glad your business is doing well! I've always loved your cards, so I'm also glad to see you made some time for cardmaking.

And what is the Silhouette Portrait thing you speak of?
