Whatcha' Doin' Wednesday

I am a little late posting today, but hope you all will still try to play along. The challenge for today is to use chipboard. Here is a chipboard coaster album I made using the Bear with Me stamp set exclusive to SUINK & MORE. Click on SUInk to see what others are doing and to play in this challenge.
Do you see the texture on the teddy? This was fun to do and just happened by accident. I will post another card using this same technique. I doubt I came up with this, though I haven't seen it posted before. I used watercolor paper, then colored with my markers. I was trying to blend colors like I do with my Gamsol and colored pencils. Anyway, adding layers and layers of ink, "roughed up" the paper and gave this cool look. So I let it dry and it looks kinda like fur. You can click on the picture to see a larger image and see what I am talking about.
New job note: I am tired!! Ü It is a LONG day leaving at 7:15 AM and getting home between 6 and 6:30 PM. Starting after Labor Day, I will not be getting home til 7 PM or later. It is hard to make cards and projects away from home because no matter what, I don't end up taking something I need. Ü So, I will have to be very organized and do all my stamping and preposting on the weekends.

I ended up in the High School instead of the Middle School. There was a gal that had to take an extended medical leave, so I will be filling in there instead. It's a bit different with High School kids. I feel bad for Benjamin, cuz what teen wants their mom at school with them. Ü
I am exhausted by the time we get home and haven't been on line. I try to stamp and feel like I lost my mojo!!!


  1. fun technique!!! Perfect with that image!!

    Sorry to hear you're tired....and at the hs....I should have read here before pm'ing you! LOL!
    Hang in might get better!! Do you have a scrapbooking case?! I found one fairly cheap that I load up when I travel. It's on wheels and everything! Then you could put your stuff in there and make notes of what to add if you find something missing. That way you could take it to and from and sort of work out of it for the time being?! Just a thought!! I have a vested interest in keeping you stamping! ;)

  2. This is SO cute! That would make a nice little "brag book" for a grandma.

  3. How darling, perfect for a little boy!!!
