Yes, I've decided to singlehandedly bring Kaleidacolor (not Kaleidescope, as I previously thought!) ink pads back into card-making vogue! I do think that they can add a lot of interest to a project. I re-discovered this alphabet in my pile of Stampin' Up stamps (Contempo Alphabet). I hadn't even mounted the stamps onto the blocks, but I do like it - it's clean and well, contemporary!
On another note, I promised to let you know about my blog header. One day when I was on Etsy, I came across Eat, Pray, Create, where Minna, the shop owner, makes custom stamps.
You can imagine, that as a child named Ardyth, I rarely had anything with my name on it, so now I'm thrilled that there are so many places where you can order customized items. I immediately fell in love with Minna's style (her own handwriting) and asked her to make me a stamp that I could use on the backs of my cards. Then I asked if she could make me an image file that I could use as my blog banner.
My vision was to have my name and MASKerade with a tiny mask at the end of each, so that they would tie in together.
You've seen the blog header, here's the stamp:
Working with Minna was fun and easy even though all communication was via email - I definitely recommend that you take a look at her shop!
