Today we are showcasing the new Kenny K stamps and Raindrop Echo Designs sentiment stamps. To take a peek at today's fabulous new release creations by the Design Team, please click on the links below...


On to my card - I used Teen Idol image stamp and sentiment from Fun Life Ticket set.

The image was coloured with Whispers water-soluble markers using no-black-lines approach. It was kind of a challenge to myself because Kenny K images have such strong striking lines and not depending on those while colouring is a wee bit tricky to put it mildly.

Please promise me you will ignore couple of bad smudges where I went in shading and discovered that image wasn't completely dry yet!!!
The papers are from Basic Grey Oliver and Wander pads. I used Whimsy Music Note background to stamp on white twill ribbon.
