She Stood in the Storm

Tuesday, April 1, 2014

A card of support for a wonderful member of Splitcoast Stampers who's working her way through a very difficult health issue.

I first placed the outline stencil on my watercolor paper.  Next I inked a background stamp with three different colors of Distress Markers and misted it with a little water before stamping through the stencil.  Once that was done, I used a Copic Multiliner to outline the stenciled image.

A simple stamped sentiment, a smattering of sequins and done!

Here's what I used:
Paper:  Gina K. and watercolor paper
Ink:  Versafine Black Onyx
Stamps:  Lil' Inker Designs Stay Beautiful (sentiment) and Hero Arts Fresh Cut Pebble Pattern
All the other stuff:  TCW Mini Sally & Carly stencil; Broken China, Peeled Paint and Chipped Sapphire Distress Markers, water mister, Copic Multiliner, sequins, Tombow glue

Challenges entered:
Splitcoast Stampers CC472: Old Olive, Bermuda Bay & Navy
Splitcoast Stampers MMTPT296: for Kathleen
