A Pocketful

For our grandson’s 7th birthday, I searched my kid-ly style stamp stash and didn’t find a heck of a lot of images a 7 year old would enjoy.  But balloons work for just about anyone, right?

Working on the cloud background reinforced my happy dependence upon Papertrey Ink’s Fresh Snow white ink . . . of all the ones I’ve tested (scores), PTI’s is the hands down winner for the most opaque white dye ink out there.  It takes awhile to dry, so use your heat gun to speed up the process:  this will keep the ink on the surface and contribute to its opacity.  You won’t be disappointed!
