Inspired Stamps Girl Praying/Lamentations 3:41


I have a sweet card using Inspired Stamps to share with you today.  I used the clear stamp called Praying Girl and the clear stamp called Lamentations 3:41 to make my card.  I stamped the Praying Girl with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored her with Copic markers YR24, YR21, Y21, YR000, E00, E000, R20, BG34, BG32, BG11, B23, B21 and a white gel pen.  

I didn't have any cardstock to match my Copic markers so I used the BG32 & BG34 on a piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock.  Spritzed the clear stamp with Copic blender solution and stamped.  It didn't work so well so I inked the stamp with Tuxedo Black and tried again, with a much better result.

My layout is an old favorite, the other cardstock I used is Via Vellum Black.  I added strips of white half pearls to the black strips of cardstock and have a cute finished card that will go into the Operation Write Home box that sits on my desk. 

Thanks for visiting my blog today!
