Single Layer Challenge



This is a card I made with Julie's Challenge in mind. I used my new Lockhart Striped Light House stamp that I purchased from Ellen. I stamped the image with StazOn Jet black on Naturals White card stock, then colored with my Prismacolor Pencils and blended with Gamsol and stumps. The sentiment is from the new SU level 1 hostess set, "So Many Sayings". I checked my ribbon supply for the perfect ribbon, and couldn't find it. In the end, I decided to use Chocolate Chip & Kraft taffeta ribbon from SU.

Stamps: Striped Lighthouse (Lockhart Stamp Co.), So Many Sayings (SU)
Card Stock: Naturals White
Ink: Jet Black StazOn, Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker
Accessories: Prismacolor Pencils & Gamsol, SU Taffeta Ribbon in Chocolate Chip & Kraft

Check out my new ink storage from Storage Units, Ink. I don't have all of my markers in it yet, but I love how everything is so easy to access now.

Thanks for visiting today, and have a nice weekend!
