This card was a happy accident. I had previously stamped this image with Clearsnap's line of Chalk Ink in Candied Yam, and I was just playing around with these stamps to see what I could create. To achieve this look, I did not clean my stamp between inking. Actually, I rarely clean my stamps!!!!
I decided to ink up the stamp again with Clearsnap's Sea Crystal. I love using these inks because they really bring out the details in these Thomas Kinkade stamps. As you can see, there is a touch of Candied Yam mixed amongst my stamped image.
I purposely did not add any additional color to the image because I think the effect I achieved is wonderful. Matting the image on brown cardstock and then blue pattern paper really helps the image pop. The sentiment is from Script Essential Expressions .
Thanks for stopping by today and don't forget to stop by and see what the other designers have been creating with the Thomas Kinkade stamps this week.
