Time . . . a precious commodity!

I've learned . . . time is certainly a precious commodity that cannot be turned back to do over.

I've been wanting to color something and use a simple coloring style. I went to my Penny Black stamp stash and came up with this wonderful stamp.

Penny Black Stamps, Kuretake Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers, Tsukineko VersaFine ink, Die-Namics Dies by My Favorite Things

Penny Black Stamps:

Centerpiece 40-388

Heartfelt 30-286

Die-namics Steel Dies by My Favorite Things:

Inside/Out Stitch Oval MFT-846

White Linen Heavy Card Stock in White (base card & cover panel)

Pop Tones card stock in sour apple (mat panel)

Conqueror 118# Cover Card Stock in Diamond White (stamped panel)

VersaFine ink in Toffee

I liked the way that the colored markers reacted to the VersaFine ink lines; the stamped line surfaced. Although the colored surface was matte-like, it looked like actual lbrush strokes in places. The cover panel was left from another die-cutting project using a different oval die. Nevertheless, I like the way the Die-namics' die cut mat panel in green fit over the stamped image and under the cover panel. The base card is 5.5" wide by 6.5" tall.

I was able to make a few other cards after the vertigo calmed down, so I will be sharing those with you this week. And I took another class from my favorite teacher, Marj Marion, at Art 'n Soul yesterday; when I complete those cards, I will share those as well.

Thanks so much for stopping by, especially after an extended absence on my part. Hope you're enjoying the beautiful days of summer.
