Stamp of the month
50% OFF

The Adirondack Chair was stamped in Natural ink from MFT. The image was colored very lightly with Copics. For the bg I used PanPastels to make the ground and the clouds. Miss You was stamped with the Natural ink and heat embossed in clear. The embossing folder, Woven, was used along with Desert Storm kraft paper for one of the layers.

Take a look at what the DT came up with!
