July ATC Swap. Partners posted
« on: June 26, 2015, 08:36:48 AM »
Hi happy stampers!
Here's the sign up for the July swap
This months theme- 4th of July. You could use flags, fireworks, Stars and Stripes,bbq, etc for your creation.
Technique requirement -this months requirement is kind of a loose one.  You must use alcohol ink on your project. I'm leaving the technique up to you since there are so many things you can use do with it.
I know Jan/Far North did a great little  challenge series here on the forum with them!

Sign ups are now through the 29th and I will post partners on the 30th.
Your mail by date will be July 14th.

As always, any questions just post them here!

I want to play. 

And want is really funny is that I don't really have any patriotic stamps, but I did get a really cool US flag stamp from Jan as RAK from the alcohol ink challenges she hosted.  So this month's theme and technique are too perfect.

Sign me up!    :smile:

I have some patriot tiny stamps I may try to use since I never use them due to their size.

I think I'm done with mine.  I'm just not sure.  Course and additional touches and mailing will have to wait until I get back from NC.

I finally finished mine! Not without some mishaps of course! First, I couldn't find my glossy paper. I knew I only had a sheet or two of it left. I finally found it in one of my boxes of pattern paper :idiot2:

Then my red alcohol ink exploded all over me and my mat I was working on. So strange, I've never had that happen before. After I was done using it, I washed the lid and outside of the bottle. Right before I was going to put it away, I noticed ink bubbled up around the edge of the lid. I just put it in a ziploc bag by its self for now. I Have no idea how old it is, it's one of my garage sale finds from two summers ago.

Mine is all finished now. Just waiting on the glitter to dry and then it will be off to Melissa tomorrow!

Sarah, I hope you had a good trip!

Oh my LeighAnn! I wonder if the heat and humidity got to the ink and made it sortof explode when you opened it?

I emailed Ranger about it. It's so weird that just the one bottle did it! Everytime I play with alcohol inks it makes me want to use them more often.
