Love Tips the Scales

Hi everyone! It's Thursday today and that means that I have a Stamper's Dream card to show you with one of the fabulous new stamps from Impression Obsession :) This fun and large stamp is called Love Scale and you can see the size of it against my 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" card base. Yes folks, it's a biggun ;0)

I started out by stamping the Love Scale stamp with versafine onyx black ink on Canson 90lb cold press paper and embossed it with clear embossing powder. I then water coloured the green background with some SU re-inkers. The rest was water coloured with my tombow markers and a water brush and then I added some sakura stardust gelly roll pen highlights to the scale itself because I figure that everyone needs a little sparkle in their day ;)

Thanks for coming by today and I hope to see you soon! This whole working deal and my father in law being sick has taken a lot of time away from my craft room and consequently depriving my lovely readers of some paper crafting eye candy! Ta, ta for now :D
