Hello, today I am sharing another card for Stephanie's Roses of Inspiration link up. Make sure to stop by and check out all the inspiring posts!
This card is going to my nephew, I can't remember if he has turned 40 yet or not. I thought it was time to use my inchie stamps again, this time I used chalk ink directly to the stamp and then watercolored the backgrounds after with distress inks. The shading around the images were also done with distress inks. The background stamp I used was from the very first stamp set I ever bought at my first Stampin up party, that is what started my journey into cardmaking years ago. I never kept the name of the set back then but it has the date of 1997 on it.
Inkadinkado -- Tree and Leaves stamp set for inches, All occasions sentiment stamp set
Stampin up -- pine stamp 1997
Spellbinders -- A2 matting basicsA die
EK success -- 1" punch
Tim Holtz - woodgrain embossing folder
Ki -- metal accents
We are once again enjoying beautiful weather, it is so nice to be able to go out without a coat once again, Peanut and Jip are enjoying sunning themselves on our deck. Oh Spring you just have to be excited for it!
Thanks to everyone who takes the time to stop by and share your comments,
Have a great week,
