CLASS: Spook & Panic Card 2

Yesterday I was had a great time visiting USArtQuest right here in Grasslake, MI.  They offered a day full of classes & education to retailers within driving distance.  When I had a store in Anchorage, AK I remember ordering quite a few Paint Palettes because they were very unique with glorious colors full of Mica sparkle & depth.  They were bought quickly because they always made "us stampers" look like we knew what we were doing!  Since coming to Michigan, I haven't ordered from them much, and was very pleased when they invited me to come and get re-acquainted with their products.  That's when I found out about their Mica Delights! and their newest Mica Pigment Paint (renamed) called "Vintage"!  Holy Cow! I think that Northwoods class coming up will have a whole new meaning!

If you want to check USArtQuest for yourself...
Check out their website here!
The owner/creator's name is Susan Pickering Rothamel (mouthful) whom you have probably seen in Magazines and Consumer Crafts shows and not known she was right here in our state!  (we got a tour of their create, package and shipping plant...very cool!) 
Check out her Webisodes here!
The difference in her card making are the products she created and manufactured herself.  I think there will be alot of ideas to pick up from her sites! 

Here is another card from the Spook and Panic Class

The stamps by "October Afternoon" are solid...so it's a bit of a challenge to give them vibrant color.  Instead of using an inkpad...I stamped in Versamark and colored with Chalk.  Heavy Chalking can give the stamp a full, velvet depth that doesn't really translate on this picture.

I'm eagerly awaiting my finished website so that I don't have to use my blog to post class pictures!  Sorry about that...it will have to do for now!
