Hello again! It's been a while since I made this card. I was thinking in terms of using some old papers with a not-yet-used stamp. I seriously need to reduce the bulk in my basket full of stamps that have yet to see ink. I love the quirky whimsy of Laurel Burch stamps and all the different things you can do with the color, so I combined this one with some nearly vintage BasicGrey.
I made a frame with an old tag die and I even used an eyelet. Imagine that! One down, 50 bazillion to go. Coloring is Tombow water-based markers with minimal use of the blender pen.
I've always enjoyed mixing up papers and making fun, yet easy to mail cards. This one with envelope and protective sheet weighs less than an ounce. My very accurate little scale removes all the guesswork. I bought the scale for weighing my Copics as I refill them, but it has come in handy for other things, as well. The scale I purchased (in 2019) is here.
I'll send this card with its Laurel Burch stamp over to Darnell's NBUS Challenge (never before used schtuff).
Thanks for visiting!
