When I first spied this stamp set, it reminded me of an old world tattoo like the ones you often see on faded vintage posters advertising to military personnel. That vision is what inspired my card for this blog hop.
To keep with the “faded” feel, I chose to stamp the image in Charcoal ink, then use my Black Journaling Pen to fill in part of the sentiment. The rest of the card was simple. I used Watercolor Pencils to shade a small portion of each image, then used a variety of Shimmer Brushes to pull the color onto the rest of the image.
I backed my sentiment with Gold Foil and Red Glitter paper to add to that vintage feel. This month’s, Heartfelt Sentiments stamp of the month defiantly has an old-world feel and is full of possibilities.
