Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps Challenge #38

Hi all! Thanks for joining me for a card for this week's Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps Challenge. Here is this week's challenge:


Here is a better look of Kim's sketch:


Here is my card:


The stamp that I used is Cursin' Chloe. She is so delightful!


I stamped the image on watercolor paper with Black StazOn ink and colored it with Twinkling H2Os. I had to use black soot, vintage photo and tumbled glass distress inks to help me finishing the card since I don't have all the Twinkling H2O colors that I needed. It is so fun to color with Twinkling H2Os and I really like the subtle shine they give to the image. I am sure you will see more images colored with them from me soon! =)


I cut the image out with a Labels 8 die and the sentiment piece is cut using the smallest die from the Petite Ovals Small die set. The patterned paper is from the Sweet Summertime collection by Echo Park and the sentiment is from the Heartily Yours Additions set designed by Nina Brackett.

That's all I have. Please go and check out what the other design team members came up with for this challenge and find out all the details for the challenge here. Hope you can join us this week! =)
