Friends with Flair - and an exciting announcement!

It's been ages since I popped in at Friends with Flair, and when I made this card I saved it for today so I could join in the fun :)


Supplies: Unity paint can & sentiment stamps; Bic markers; Memento Tuxedo Black & Gray Flannel inks; Distress inks in Tumbled Glass, Picked Raspberry, Peacock Feathers, Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed, Mowed Lawn, Shaded Lilac; Pewter Pssst spray from Tsukineko; splat stamps from Neat & Tangled


I stamped & coloured the top panel, and then added in the random splats. The background was stamped, spritzed, and left to dry before assembling the card. (I hate drying time...sometimes I really want to see how the finished card will look RIGHTNOW!)

And now for the exciting announcement!
Earlier this week it was announced that the Drunken Stampers lounge was closing - and well, that made us sad. We are more like a small gang than a design team, really, and so we quickly turned around & decided to begin a new challenge together! Starting tomorrow, Saturday February 8th, we'll be bringing you challenges every 2 weeks as the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers!

Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers


We even have a badge for you!

Join the Sisterhood!! Grab our badge for your blog!!

Be sure to pop by & follow the Snarky Stampers blog for our first challenge tomorrow! Thanks for stopping by :)
xoxo,
Jessi
