How do you prepare for the weekly Drunken Stampers challenge?
Do you unfurl the cord on heat gun? Perhaps you download a new digistamp or even program a new shape on the ol' die cutter.
But not this week, fellow creators! This week's challenge is sponsored by Laura Ingalls and your local energy savings group! It's the no electricity allowed challenge!
My own piece for the week is going to be quite a shock, especially to my friends: It's a Tim Holtz alterations die cut from, have you guessed, a Guinness can!
The plaque is provided by an ekSuccess slimline punch (I think it's actually called real estate sign or something).
Anyhow, the colors are from alcohol inks, blues and coppers on the cage and reds and white on the bird. The plaque, which I'll just admit I adore, is colored with butterscotch and eggplant alcohol inks. The way those colors mixed and created a vintage sort of worn metal finish ... neat!
The sentiment is from the A Tweet Close to my Heart set, stamped with black archival ink.
Only a couple of weeks ago I finally realized that you can purchase archival inks in colors other than black.
So, while I try to figure out the best place to pick up a couple of other archival colors, go unplug your printer and heat gun and get crackin' on the Drunken Stampers Technology Sucks challenge!
