Final sneak peek until the catalogue goes live...... on Thursday

This is another image from the 'Crafting Forever' stamp set. I really like this as I used to write a lot of letters. I went to boarding school for over 10years and wrote home every week, this gave me a love of letter writing, sadly something we don't do anymore. There is something very comforting about a well weighted ink pen.

I have fussy cut the pen and coloured with those wonderful watercolour pencils once coloured with the pacific point and smokey slate. then very lightly water coloured. I have then used the wink of stella pen on the smokey slate areas to make them gleam . I was looking for a sentiment that was something like  - just a note..... but came across this in 'Bookcase Builder'  Using the marker pen to ink it has enabled me to split it for the front and the inside.

I have kept the whole card very simple. I will be back in a few weeks with some multilayered cards using this set.

Only 5 days left for a last minute bargain. Check out the retirement page in the shop here

Remember to use the hostess code if you order is over £25 and under £150 then in June I will send you a small bag of Stampin Up goodies as a thank you.
