A New Column for Mark's Finest Paper!



YAY!!  I have been asked to write a new column each week for MFP Speedy TV!  When choosing a theme to write about, I asked if I could just simply choose purple, and they said yes!!  I totally love the color purple and am attracted to it in almost any circumstance!  In case you haven't noticed (or if you're new here!)  I use purple in almost all my projects...even when I try not to!




So...HERE is where you can find my new column each and every Wednesday.  You can expect cards, projects and layouts using Mark's Finest Papers stamps, and you can always expect to find some purple inspiration!


For my inaugural project I decided to make a card using the MFP Be A Showoff stamp set.  I LOVE the peacocks in the set, and the sentiments are useful and all-purpose too!  I just used a variety of them right down the side of the card!


To get the sparkle on the peacock, I used Elizabeth Crafts Glitter Ritz and then colored it with Bic Mark Its.  The glitter goes on white (although you can get it in many different colors) and accepts the color from alcohol markers.  Since peacock feathers always seem to have a gorgeous sheen to them, I thought the glitter would be perfect!  I have a Glitter Ritz tutorial on how to use this awesome stuff, if you're interested in learning more.
