Don't Lose Hope


     Today I have a card, which I made using another of my Older Gina K. Designs stamp sets.  I have been pulling thing out and giving them some inky love!  This set is called Dream Birds, and was Illustrated by Asela Hopkins.  I also took this time to give my Ranger Oxide Inks a good workout.  Everything they say is true.  You can layer colors drying in between, and they do not get muddy!

     The card started with a white base and then a layer of Chocolate Chip card.  I created my background using Faded Jeans, Iced Spruce, and Fossilized Amber Oxides.  The bird and tree were colored with Copic markers.  I used a few SU! mini star punches and a white gel pen to add a little dimension, and finished by coating the punched stars with Diamond Stickles.

     I would like to take this card over to Addicted To Stamps Challenge #145, which is to use a stamped image and stamped sentiment.

     This will also fit in with the Crop Stop April Challenge- Link Party #27.  Suggested by a comment... thanks!

     Your visit is greatly appreciated, and I hope you will stop by again.

Mary Anne,
I love this set of stamps, isn't it fun to use them again. I pull mine out mostly for ATC's and Tags now but I always have fun pulling out stuff that needs love. I'm sure I have stamps that have never even seen ink isn't that ashamed. Now for the inks this card convinced me I need those inks it looks beautiful.
