Wowzers... These cards are gorgeous, Julie!! Looks like I need some new watercolors!
Rebecca, No I havent sealed it. Considering Memento is a permanent ink, I dont think there will be a problem with bleeding. I may do some testing will report back with my findings. Thanks for the input! Sharon Harnist www.PaperFections.com Sent from my iPhone

My youngest daughter has always loved drawing and has taken a renewed interest in it again lately. To help nurture her talent, I customized a sketch book for her: To customize the cover, I stamped a variety of Pink Ink Stamp Company’s latest summer release of stamps all over the cover. I love all the beachy, summery images and hope these will help inspire my daughter over the summer! I added my daughter's name using Essentials by Ellen Basic Alpha: And since this is a sketch book, I thought it would be appropriate to keep the images stamped in just black ink. I used Memento Tuxedo Black ink and was very pleased with how well the images stamped out on the leather cover! Don’t you love all the fun, amazing details in these images?!! The book I’m using is a 6” x 8” senseBook. This book has a beautiful recycled genuine leather cover! The book also has thread binding, a red ribbon bookmark, 135 numbered index pages to easily keep your thoughts / sketches / drawings organized, acid-free wood paper, personal information page, red elastic rubber band closure, 16 perforated pages for easy removal, 7 pages of index for individual...

Today I would like to share one of my most favorite papercrafting products with you, Foam Tape ... I use it on just about EVERY project I make, to create interest and dimension. Plus, it is a fabulous adhesive! I use it to raise a simple sentiment up off the background so it stands out, becomes the main focus, and doesn't blend into the background: Foam tape adheres all kinds of textiles, including heavyweight cardstock (shown above), ribbon, buttons, felt (shown below): Use many layers of foam tape to create a dramatically dimensional realistic flower: As you can see, foam tape is a great option for adding dimension to your crafting projects and my favorite is X-Press It Foam Tape. It holds firmly, yet removes cleanly and won’t damage surfaces. And since it is acid and solvent-free, it is also perfect for scrapbooking! It comes in two different types: Double-Sided Foam Tape 1/2 inch or 3/4 inch x 4.4 yards Acid-free Solvent-free Create 3D effects Easily apply by hand No static liner -- means the liner is easy to peel off and won't stay stuck to your fingers when trying to remove it! Perfect for mounting Ideal for scrapbooking Suitable... Continue reading

"I'm a Copic marker beginner, what colors do you recommend getting?" This is the number one question I am asked, along with "Which colors blend well together?" So quite some time ago, I put together this chart of some of my favorite go-to color combinations and natural blending groups I use all the time (total of 109 colors!) -- I offer it as a free download and I hope you will enjoy using it! If you loose track of this blog post, you can always find the download over on my Copic FAQ page HERE. Click on the following links to download the 2-page PDF: Download Sharon Harnist Favorite Copic Combos 2014-1 Download Sharon Harnist Favorite Copic Combos 2014-2 Please be sure to select "Fit to Page" when printing the above charts. Building your own marker sets ensures your collection will contain your very own personalized sets/colors that will get the most love and use from your papercrafting dollars! I always suggest selecting some of your favorite colors you are naturally drawn to, along with some of the suggestions below, according to what you typically color most, i.e. people, nature, etc. After selecting a few favorite hues from each color...
