I went to a local scrapbook store today. I picked up a package of the Basic Grey Hang Ten papers. I checked the price, then sadly set them down. The saleslady comes up to tell me, "that's the last package, it's 50% off!", so that changed my position on them. I also picked up some other Basic Grey papers, from the Gypsy line, and some Wholy Cow rub-ons. I hadn't used those before, not sure why, because they are so cool and so easy to use (that's a later project, maybe for here tomorrow). Anyway, so with new Hang Ten papers in hand, it only seemed appropriate that I use the Do The Hula set! I also used the greeting from It's Your Birthday (the one with the aged font look). The paper that the surfboards are stamped on was soaked in an ink-water bath. Then, while it was still saturated, I dribbled a few reinkers on it. Because the paper was so wet, the reinkers floated around nicely which ended up producing kind of a backwards tye-dye effect.
