Last night I had so much fun at Sew Crafty. I think Houston is finally becoming cool. The owner lady is super nice and she's the cute but with an edge type of gal. More imporantly, she's my hero for quitting her day job and put it into craft and open a craft lounge type place. She really made the place a home for people to come and hang. Too cool.
Anyway, what was really the cool thing was that I finally got to play with Gocco. Don't know if you've heard of it, I have just didn't dare. It's a card making device that uses technique that are similar to screen printing. I like it alright... I think I need to play more with it. Don't worry, I'm not giving up stamping at all, but if you want the same thing same color duplicated many of times, Gocco is the way to go. In many aspect, it's like stamping, you get your image, you get your ink and you get dirty but the outcome is wonderful. But, the on flip side, it is costly, and if you're not artistic with your own image design you may not get as much out of it as the artists would (which I am drwaing challenged). But all in all, I had a blast, learned alot, and definitely am encouraged to find more neat image to print.
So now to the pics, out of the blue, I found a stack of Note Cards, I just decided to stamp some and I can put the initial on there later. Some of the color matches better than others, some of them, hmm.... not-so-much.
