Come join me for a Studio Calico class... INKED!

Hello all! I am super excited to share some news with you today...  I'm part of a brand new class over at Studio Calico for July called INKED!  
Check out the details...

Want to get more from your stamps? Get INKED with Maile Belles and Nichol Magouirk. Maile, Nichol, and a top notch line up of contributors will be walking you through an amazing array of techniques that will help you realize just how versatile your stamps are. Our contributors for this class are Amber Kemp Gerstel, Amy Tan, Anabelle O’Malley, Betsy Veldman, Celine Navarro, Corrie Jones, Cristina Kowalczyk, Emily Branch, Geralyn Sy, Jen Gallacher, Jen McGuire, Jessica Witty, Kelly Goree, Lea Lawson, Lisa Spangler, Robyn Werlich, Shanna Noel, Susan Weinroth and Tina Aszmus.
We will be covering twenty techniques with a new PDF going up each weekday from July 1st to the 26th. Each lesson will contain a tutorial on the technique as well as a layout and a card showing the technique in action. Five of the tutorials will be done with videos, and the rest with step by step photos and directions.
While supplies last, Inked students will get a free class stamp set and 2x3 Peerless Watercolor Papers in Poinsettia Red and Chrome Orange. These will ship at no cost to you, no matter where you live. We’ll update this page when the class stamp set and watercolor papers are no longer available.
Inked students will also have access to a digital version of the stamp, as well as printables from In A Creative Bubble and Hello Forever, and die cut files from Kinsey Wilson.
Here’s a list of techniques we’ll be learning in class :
using text style stamps in journaling
colorful stamped accents
heat embossed stamping
watercolor stamped accents
adding texture with background stamps
layered stamping
using stamp markers
accent a stamped image with glitter or glossy accents
creating patterns
ombre stamping
Watercolored images
chalkboard effect
digi stamping basics
resist with watercolors
tweaking the shape of a stamp
stamping onto patterned paper
layering images stamped on a transparency 

The class is $29, and while supplies last students will get a bonus class kit including the stamp set (pictured above) + two Peerless watercolor papers.

Enrollment is open now through June 30th, then class will start July 1st.

I hope to see you there!!!
