Hi everyone!

Today I’m playing along with the current  Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

I decided to use stamps from the new Penny Black Delight release today. When I saw the sketch, I immediately thought of the beautiful Companions cling stamp (40-769) which I thought would fit perfectly on the right hand side of the card against an ink-blended background. I stamped the image in Antique Linen distress ink and coloured it with my Twinkling H2Os. I couldn’t get the shimmer to show up in my photos sadly. After colouring, I masked off the image and created an ink-blended background, following the sketch. I think re-stamped the image to emphasise the lines (thank goodness for my MISTI!).

Finally I added a sentiment from the Thinking of You clear stamp set (30-825) and a few sequins.

Thanks for stopping by!
