Pen Pal

The wonderful Katharina is starting her own stamp company. She has some sneak previews of a few of the stamps already on her blog. They are fantastic. I can see that my budget is going to take another hit! She has an amazing Design Team set up. It is like the "dream team"! I know she is going to have a huge success on her hands. Congratulations to her!

She is going to have guest designers as well. This is my submission. The sketch was provided by Katharina. I just received my new stamps from Funky Kits yesterday and I couldn't wait to ink them up! I love theis image and I know I'm going to use her again and again! The image is quite large so I realized that I couldn't double mat it as I had planned. So I cut it out using my large scallop rectangle from my Nesties set. It looked a little stark so I dry-brushed a little River Rock ink along the sides to soften it up! I also added a little bit of stickles to the flowers in her hair and her heart necklace to give the girl a little bling!

Thanks for the opportunity to try out, Katharina!
