Have you tried Lindy's Stamp Gang Ink Sprays?! The colors are fabulous! If you click onto my picture, you can see the shimmer of the clouds. First I misted with the stencil and when it was wet, I used the inked stencil like a stamp - no need to waste all that wonderful color! LOL!! I used the Starburst Ink Spray products.

There are three types:
  1. Starburst has colored pigmented dye ink base with colored mica;
  2. Moon Shadow has walnut ink base with colored mica;
  3. Glitz Spritz has a clear base with colored mica).
Fellow DT Member Ly Le demo these sprays at Scrapbook Expo in Anaheim last month and on her ScrapMart: Lindy's Gang Demo and Tutorial post, she explained in detail plus a fabulous tutorial! Go visit - bookmarked for my reference! Thanks, Ly!

At the airport, while in line for security screening, we had a "celebrity" come through...convicted former IL Gov. Rod Blagojevich was traveling to report to federal prison in Colorado. It was quite a circus with all the news people crowding around to get a good shot/interview. After getting through security, he held a mini meet and greet with travelers before heading to his gate. Our excitement of the morning...I guess.


Thanks for stopping by!
