Nancy *Day 2*

I love the simple elegance of this next inspiration card by Nancy.  The beautiful stamping in that warm yellow just makes me smile. I love the subtle gray of the sentiment, too, combined with the twine. 
Here's my take:
I began by stamping Penny Black 4240K Flamboyant after inking it with Distress Stains (Wild Honey, Forest Moss, and Vintage Photo).  After stamping, I added additional shading with Faber-Castell Art Grip colored pencils.  The background was stamped and inked with Pumice Stone Distress Ink (Penny Black 4242K Flower Garden). I also inked the edges with Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink.
And I just had to mention that Nancy has some great Faber-Castell blog candy at her blog- check it out HERE.
Thanks so much for your visits and comments- it means so much to me.
Have a wonderful weekend, my stamping friends!

Lovely watercolour effect with your stamping & I love the Pumice Stone background you created. The twin really gives a lovely natural feel.
