  4. WOW!!! this is just gorgeous, love that blue too. I would really like to see a tutorial on how you inked the mirror, what tool did you use with the ink?

    1. It was very easy - I used an ink blending tool - a little handle that you put a sponge on top of then I added a few different colors of alcohol ink and some of the blending solution then you just dab away.

  5. TOOOOO pretty for words!! It is always nice hopping with you and the KCC.
