If I may be so bold....

Bold!
We're taught never to mix our stamp pad inks, right? It's stamping 101.  But one day, I was playing with the inks and accidentally forgot to clean off my stamp before switching inks. I liked the look and continued mixing them. Bold move? Oh yes!

Although I do not recommend doing this, I liked where it lead me. I felt like an alchemist! I created a wonderful aged metallic with a fabulous sheen that refuses to photograph well..

I'm celebrating the Bold! And these paper prize ribbons are just what I needed!

Now it's your turn! Whether it be a bold stamp, a bold color, or maybe a bold move. Be Bold!

Seems like you're constantly finding ways to use cool products in inspiring ways. Several times I've bought a certain product solely because of the innovative way you've used it. So thanks for inspiring me and for helping me find more reasons to buy things! ;)
