new Ranger pigments & pearls video!

Last month I posted a 3 part tutorial on a new background technique called pigments & pearls.

Ranger's pigment inks are opaque...and great for stamping or covering chipboard.

This technique uses the pigment inks in a new way and combines them with the shimmery Perfect Pearls.

Here are the original blog posts.

Part 1
Part 2
and Part 3

Here's the YIPPEE part...

I made a video for Ranger @ CHA in July & it's the featured video on the Ranger site for the month of September!
YIPPEE!

You can see the video here on the Ranger site...
or on You-tube here...

Thanks to my RANGER family!!! You guys are GREAT!

Thanks to my CHA roomie...Paper Patti...
she is the video-er? She video-ed me...whatever?
Videographer? yep...that's better.


And since every post needs a photo...

Great video. it has been cold here that's for sure. Christmas is a good idea. It is always great to get an early inspiration to make cards and not at the last minute. Thanks again for all you do for us.

Hi Wendy
I am new to your blog. I have a simple question. i love all the tags that you, Tim and others do but can I ask what do you do with them.... do you send them as cards, use them on gifts... just wondering.

Susan said...

The new video is great - I love that technique. The shimmer is gorgeous. Love all the tags.

Send some of that cold weather to TX - we're having a cold spell of low 90's! I'm ready for fall.
