LOTS OF DIFFERENT INKING TECHNIQUES!

Did you miss my Live this morning? You can catch the replay right here, and you will definitely want to watch.
Today I shared cards made during the RR Inspiring SnapDragons Class this past Monday. I used a few different "inking" techniques that I think you are going to enjoy. I also shared a tip on how to "customize" your dies, which is especially helpful when diecutting sentiments.
REMEMBER: For every $50 you order during July, you will get a $5 off coupon to use in August AND you will also receive RR Rewards, which are always a fun surprise! Be sure to order using this link to receive your RR Rewards. https://www.stampinup.com/?hostcode=SBAZN737
