Quick and Colorful

Just because I miss someone badly…

I used a masked inking technique to get the colors on this one – a technique I show in Summer Card Camp 2. But basically I masked off each letter on the stamp, inked it and then stamped it on the card. I repeated this until it was all done! And (of course) I added Wink of Stella glitter pen for shine. Oh, and the little heart is from one of my favorite SSS stamp sets. (A little heart stamp is a must-have – a great way to spice up a greeting.)

I adore this stamp set. You will be seeing it a lot.

Super easy. Super quick. Super perfect for the person I miss so much.
