Today's my first appearance as a columnist for Unruly Paper Arts. Hope you'll pop by!  The theme all month has been Ink Minx, and there is loads of inspiration over on the blog. My column is on ink techniques, and my tags are inked with a variety of Dylusions Ink Sprays, Archival Inks, and Distress Inks (all by Ranger). I started with this:

And ended up with this:

I used tons of stamps and stencils on this project, and I've included a lot of stepped-out photos in the column over at UPA.   Hope you'll pop over to see the whole thing.  Thanks so much for the visit!
