Texas Tuesday - Thinking Inking-style!

Today I'm sharing the third card I made the other night after watching Thinking Inking Week 6 on 2 Peas. I pulled out my Deadbeat Designs bluebonnet stamp and tried out the double resist!

I love how this turned out - although I botched it up a bit with that message. It says "Sending you a big ol' Texas hug!" - it's a little easier to read IRL, but not much. I probably should have stamped it with brown StazOn rather than Distress ink. Ah well, you live & learn. I love this double resist technique though, what fun! I followed Jennifer's instructions, even using the same colors of ink. It was really great to bust out something that's been in my drawer for YEARS - my massive stash of glossy cardstock from my Stampin' Up days. I should make a ton of double resist cards now!!

Hope you liked my Texas-inspired card! It's getting rather cold in central Texas these days - you know, by central Texas standards, not Minnesota standards!! It's nice to play with my bluebonnet stamp and think about spring. :-) Now make sure and check out what my wonderful Texas Tuesday partners were up to this week. You can find their links over on my sidebar.

Happy Stamping!
