This wonderful September Stamp of the Month, Family is Forever, is available for only another week and a few days.......it is a keeper! It is hard to think about Fall when it is a whopping 24 degrees today. Our weather forecast is changing to showers and I plan to enjoy them too!There has been so much wonderful artwork floating around with this stamp set, that I used several ideas, from other consultants, to complete this card.
First, while inking my tree with Desert Sand ink, I swiped on the ink to give a more tree like look to the trunk. Once stamped, I used my Shin Han markers to colour over the leaves and hearts. I also used my colourless blender to push colour back, where I coloured outside the lines! I stamped the sentiment in Pacifica ink.
I swiped the entire piece with Versamark ink, then embossed with clear powder. I added paper from NEW Snowhaven and retired For Always. I also have Black; Pacifica; and Glacier cardstock mats.
All supplies are Close To My Heart, unless noted.
