friend for life

Its Monday already?!?  Where did my weekend go?  Does anyone else wish it is still Sunday?  I do lol!  Well, last week I received a beautiful PTI stamp set from my friend Chris, and I finally got to ink it up.  PTI stamps are made from photopolymer, so, I really like using Dew Drops (chalk ink) and Brilliance pigment inks with them.  You get really nice coverage, which is awesome when you are working with silhouette stamps.  I generation stamped each flower stem, generation stamping is where you ink up the stamp once and continue to stamp until the ink is off the stamp.  The more you stamp the lighter the image becomes, this technique is really nice to use when you want to create depth.  
I apologize for the poor lighting/photo its dark outside and I hate taking pictures without natural light...oh well.  Well I'm off for now, I have terrible allergies right now and looking at a computer screen is hurting my eyes.  Have a wonderful Monday!!
