Today it is Thrifty Stamper's turn to bring us the tutorial challenge. 
 It is brushed ink stripes and you can find it  here. I didn't have the
necessary supplies so I just used my jar of purple ink made a swipe added 
two drops of water another stripe and continued till it faded to the palest.
I love the MFP a Heinrich Co.Premium card stock, it is 140 lb,
great for using the ink on and lays so nice and flat!

Not the most successful with the ink but I love do love how my image
 turned out. After coloring it I  added some Triple Gloss to my
wine glass. Embossed a strip down the center punching
holes in the centers of each section and wove the 
checked ribbon thru . It seemed so plain so I added the funky checked leaf .
My sentiment is one from the new All Postal Set.
It is one the new February releases found

by and join the challenge this week, the winner will receive this fun set.
