Hello my friends! I'm seeing some wonderful cards in the Pinkfresh Studio May 2021 Challenge gallery! One more attempt on my part couldn't hurt - my wish-list is very long!
I've used the fabulous Miss Your Smile stamps, and layering stencils once again - honestly I've used them MANY times since they arrived - this one combines the lovely colors from the PF Challenge combination again ... hope they like it!
I wanted to share a discovery - one that you may already have learned - about Distress Oxide inks. Using an ink like Versa Clair for the outline stamping can be affected by the oxide inks, leaving them rather chalky looking ... here's a look at how I conquered the chalky look:

Do you see the 'chalky' look of the outlines? After applying TH Distress Micro Glaze ... there's a visible difference to me!
I was then happy enough to complete my card... highlighting another of the Perfect Sentiments and that genius one-piece die, as I did with my first card, with one of the Braided Tags dies!
OH have you heard the fabulous news??? Pinkfresh now sells their fabulous jewels in refill packs so you can pick your favorites, or refill those little jars!! Now the next trick is finding them in stock! Here's a link to those among my favorites! I love the kraft stamping and layering with these colors - do you?
