Post A Note from Artful INKables


I love this stamp...it is so versatile and there are so many ideas running through my head about what I can do with it next. I haven't done green in a while and I wanted this image to be framed in green...so, without further ado...I used Stampin Up DP for the background and the scalloped nesties. I stamped the image in Momento Tuxedo Black and then colored with my Copic Ciao's. I added some tiny rhinestones to the center of each flower, ribbon that I had in stash and Robin's Nest Pebbles in green. Kristin at ArtfulInkables has some wonderful stamps...There is such a variety from whimsical to elegant to just plain fun!! Go on over to her blog and see the latest tutorial...it is too cool!!!
Thanks for stopping by!

Thanks for the nice comment on my blog about the House Mouse makeup mice. I would love to send you some of these stamped images, I just need your mailing address. The stamp is an older one and may be difficult to find.

The card is delicious. Lush coloring. I love the white dotted swiss with the deep green of the ribbon. The stamp is a good one to adapt. The flowers stand out from the rest as you inked them so well. I guess that is why you are an "INK" girl.
