To create my card, I mixed several kinds of stamp sets from different companies. Without further ado, here is what I came up with:

DSC_4016-3I altered an original stamp image to create my own scene by adding my hand-drawn image. Can you tell which image I drew myself?

sample_1118You will find here on my step-by-step photo tutorial. 1)Stamp the scooter image from Feelin’ Groovy stamp set by Taylored Expressions using Memento Tuxedo black ink. 2)Mask off the wheels and stamp the border stamp from On Point Borders stamp set by Mama Elephant using silver ink. 3)Mask off the bird’s wing and stamp the bird on the scooter’s seat. Then draw a wing and body line using Copic Multiliner. 4)Draw a flagpole using black pen and stamp the flag from Carnival Toppers stamp set by Mama Elephant. Then stamp the sentiment from Rustic Spring stamp set by Mama Elephant. 5)Color the images with Copic markers. 6)Stamp the hearts in red.

    Hi May, you recently left some lovely comments about my card on my blog and you were wanting to know what white pigment ink I used to stamp the sentiment onto the kraft card. I used the new Simon Says Stamp White Pigment Ink. It works really well with fine stamps and is brilliant on kraft. I hope that’s some help for you!!
