This and that...!

Since a month now we are in Naples, Florida.... even if it's cooler than usual it still is nicer than in my hometown in Québec, Canada... I hear they have lots of snow... poor dears I sympatise with you ...!
I have been doing fun Valentine cards that I already sent ... no pictures of these.
The only think I miss when travelling is my scanner... Here I have to take a picture of my work and I'm not always pleased with those. Anyway, I have discovered the "RubberStampMadness" mag... Oh boy do I like this mag... I have never seen it in Montréal where I get most of my other mags! I will subscribe that one for sure.
I did a bit of art, first to participate in one of my groups' lottery and the other for a birthday.
"WORDS" was the theme of our lottery. For this card I played with Technique Junkies' "Faux Designer Paper", Nancy Judd contributed this fabulous technique and I love it... It's so much fun to do and allows lots of room for creativity... Thank you Nancy!

This other one is an awesome way to work with alcohol inks. I already love working with those and when I saw this article in RubberStampMadmess I wanted absolutely to try... This technique is from Marina Lenzino and as Marina says it does require a bit of pratice LOL! I finally came up with a background that pleased me. Marina designs her own stamps ... and you can image that I have ordered some ... unfortunately they did come in, in time for me to use on this background. I used this lovely stamps from Delta, I'm quite pleased with the card I did.


That is all for now ... hope you've enjoyed your visit!
