7141  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Discussion and Questions / Re: How can I make an ink pad for alcohol inks? on: April 15, 2007 07:12:28 PM
Okay, now I'm confused...I was thinking that you stacked the little squares (like all of the mattresses from the story of The Princess and the Pea), and applied the inks to the top of the stack, then pressed the stamp onto that to ink it up. Would this work?

But it sounds like you are making something like a felt brush (which helps me better understand what you meant when you said a clothespin "handle"), where you use the edges of the felt to dab the ink onto the surface. Or am I even more confused?

On the ATC board there is a "Share a Technique" thread that is really useful. Give it a glance.
I'll have to do that! For some reason, I have this mental block when it comes to ATCs Wink Maybe it's because I'm afraid that I'll get sucked in by them... Cheesy

I've used felt for the inks, regular ones from the fabric store.  I'd cut a sheet into small squares or circles then use clothes pins (the kinds with spring closuring) as handles.

Thanks! The felt you mean is not the wool felt- it's the kind that I can buy in squares (and sometimes on a bolt), right?

And, do I need to stack a few squares of felt to make the pad?

Maimun is right about the felt. I checked my techniques page on the ATC board and they recommend that method also. I was told the problem with my cotton pads is that the lint shreds and gets messy- which has happened- but the felt does not. So you might want to give that a try first.
Oooh- I hadn't thought of shredding...good thing I forgot to go to the pharmacy yesterday! And, I didn't think to browse the ATC board for help  Tongue I used the search function before I posted my question and didn't find anything...maybe my search terms were too narrrow... Huh

Thanks again for your help!

they finally shipped the order about five days ago (amigurumi collection 1 took forever!), and usps has no record of the tracking number at all. now i am paranoid usps is going to destroy/lose/ my package! i was too tempted by the free shipping!

I have my lastest order on its way, too. And usually the USPS tracking info isn't updated very quickly. I've received items and the USPS tracking site still says that bit about "received the shipping info but that doesn't mean we've sent it yet..." or whatever it says.

I just checked mine and it says that there is no record of this number. I even deleted that last 2 zeros and still got the same message. Well, at least we have the message from YesAsia saying they sent it...they can sort it out if it gets lost, right?

I'm still going with the notion that the USPS just hasn't updated their info  Wink

I love these! And, I think that the third chair is subdued enough that it could be a chair in the living room or something. The darker background makes it look a little more "serious" until you look close and see Buzz  Cheesy

Great job!
7147  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Owl Swap Round 4. Signups April 12-26. Send-outs May 26! on: April 14, 2007 06:23:32 PM
Awesome, thanks AmaZing!

I have thought of some cool ideas already!

So have I, and um... I've even started a couple of things!  Smiley

I just realized a few minutes ago that I have signed up for 5 swaps! Yikes! Fortunately, one of them is super quick, and another one will be sent on Saturday, I hope. The remaining three are not due until May, so I have time. Whew!

And, on Monday, if I can't get a ride home, I may be sitting at the car repair shop all day, so I'm packing a bag of things that I can work on for this swap. Owls are addicting!! Wink

Thanks for the advice!

Are the cotton type make-up pads the ones that are square and look like little quilted comforters?

Can you tell I don't wear make-up?  Wink

Okay, I'm finally have the hand of a regular granny square, and I'm starting to learn a few fancy stich patterns...so if I am brave, I may attempt this...how much time do we have?
7150  CROCHET / Crochetalongs / Re: Fat Bottom Bag CAL... anyone? on: April 14, 2007 07:31:43 AM
steen- One reason that I haven't attempted this bag is because I didn't like the handles at all. The other reason is because I wasn't sure my crochet skills could tackle it. But, I love your modification and my crochet skills are improving, so I may be attempting this in the near future. And I love your lining fabric!
