First, I stamped the image in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. It dries quickly and doesn’t smear or run with the Blends. Coloring is so soothing; once my mind calmed down, I was able to visualize the rest of the sketch. I found a small piece of the Foil Frenzy Specialty Paper, and knew in an instant that had to be my background. Using a small piece like this, adds some sparkle and shine without being the focal piece of the card.
Once I was finished, it needed just a wee bit more. There aren’t any sentiments in the Flying Home Stamp Set, so I set about finding just the perfect one. And wouldn’t you know it, Sheltering Tree had just what it needed.
I can’t wait to share from the upcoming Occasions and Sale-a-bration with you.
