I've just been introduced to a great blog, A Crafty Life. A fellow male crafter (but a million times better!), Dan is one of the creative designers at The Artistic Stamper.
I've just watched a recent video tutorial that he did, in which he shows how to blend the Ranger Distress Ink pads. Dan created a tag, making it look so easy yet so professional.
This tutorial was like a gift to me as i really wanted to improve my blending technique, which before this video was pretty much non-existent, unless you count spilling blending soloution over my work!
The video tutorial is here over at Dan's blog.
So this morning has gone well despite losing a bank card and it pouring from the heavens.
I've had a chat and a purchase with the lovely Jennie at The Artstic Stamper (got me some new colours in the Tim Holtz Distress Ink pads), and then my girlfriend tells me about Dan's blog....plus Maddy is sending me a craft stash parcel (they are the best ever!).
Does it get better than this? I think not. As someone once said, "Throw in a fat guy and tree and you've got christmas!!!" :)
Have a great day all.
