I've been making so many valentine cards that it seemed weird to bring out my Christmas stamps but I wanted to get a start on my cards with the challenge at Merry Monday - with a bow. Now I don't put bows on my cards, at least not real ribbon bows. Maybe a twine one now and then but if they can't be mailed in a regular envelope then I forego them. Luckily I had a bow stamp and this card was born.
I was perusing the Dick Blick catalog in art class a couple of weeks ago and saw that they had their Inktense pencils on sale half price. I couldn't afford to pass that up. I played around with them the other night and knew they would work for this stamp set by Sheena Douglas. I think the practice one turned out better than my finished card but isn't that often the case. I accidentally spattered some paint as I was wetting the pencil tip so went ahead and made intentional spatters. I will tell you, using those pencils takes practice. Lots of it.
Thanks for stopping by. Your visits and comments are always appreciated.
