Happy Mail Card

There are only hours left to play along in the Inky Paws Challenge. It's a sketch challenge and the Newton's Nook design team created some wonderful examples. I decided to play with the Newton's Happy Mail stamp set along with the coordinating die and the tiny flowers are from the Winston's Honeybees stamp set. After selecting the stamp sets I decided on patterned paper by Doodlebug Designs. The gingham was a scrap from an older paper pad and the polka dots are from the Spring Things paper pad. A white piece of cardstock was turned blue using a brayer and Tumbled Glass distress ink. The images and sentiment were stamped using Memento black ink and then colored with Copic markers. After layering the patterned papers onto a piece of Daffodil Delight cardstock by Stampin' Up!, some pink twine by was wrapped around and secured to the back with tape. Finally, it was ready to adhere to the card base and the bow was tied. That's it! Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your day!
