Playing with my Birthday Stamps

Hi There! I'm dashing into blogland very quickly with a card I made a few weeks ago to say thanks to Lynne, who bought me this gorgeous set of stamps by Art Journey for my birthday. I ink dusted the background with memento teal zeal, bahama blue and seedless preserves DI. I stamped the teasel and pussy willow in archival black, and the tiny script (Inkylicious) in starlight black brilliance ink.
I added a bit of detail with a gelly roll white pen to finish it off.
I am an infrequent visitor at the moment, but I am almost half way through my reports now, so I am hoping to be back more regularly by the end of next week. Thanks for looking and for all your encouraging comments xxx


  1. That's a stunner Sally . . .and happy belated birthday wishes to you.

  2. A gorgeous card Sally, I love the background colours you've used and the addition of the white pen giving the feeling of light hitting the them.
