I would be embarrassed to tell you how many stamps I own. Even more embarrassed to let you in on how many of those stamps have never been inked. I have no problem buying the images I love. I am just hesitant to use them sometimes because I sometimes feel as though I won't do justice for the image. I'm trying to break this thinking really...one of the goals I have for myself this summer.
So, on my first official day off for summer break, I decided to go ahead and ink a newly acquired image from There She Goes. Both the image and the sentiment are from the GORGEOUS set "In All The World". I stamped the image with Marvy black dye onto X-Press it cardstock. I colored the image with Copic markers, and using a Nestabilities circle die, used the out-of-the-box technique. I paper pierced around the circle.
The patterned paper is from Darcie. It too was paper pierced, and faux-stitched with a colored pencil. The sentiment was stamped with Versafine Onyx Black ink. Sheer white ribbon, and a pink brad put the finishing touches on this card.
This card will be going to the lady who watches my Sloopy. She truly is a blessing.
