Solitaire


This week's Simon Says Stamp & Show challenge is to stamp without using a traditional ink pad ... so this motivated me to get out my Marvey brushstroke markers which haven't seen the light of day in quite a while, and a Penny Black brushstroke stamp "Solitaire". Here's the result.


Stamps: Penny Black "Solitaire"; LotV "Christmas grungy messages";
Media: watercolouring with Marvey brushstroke pens; edges of image distressed with TH "Antique linen" distress ink;
Papers: Basic Grey "Figgy Pudding";
Supplies: flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts; gold mesh ribbon and pearlised berries from The Ribbon Girl.


Challenges:
Simon Says Stamp & Show - Stamp Without Ink
Wild Orchid Crafts #63 - A Traditional Christmas
Whimsy #53 - Traditional Christmas Colouring


That's all for today - off out to do a bit of Christmas shopping.
Hugs,
