Flowering Vine Digital Stamp, Thomas Kinkade Rubber Stamp - MMSC40


It's Tuesday and that means it's time for Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge #40! Woo Hoo! I hope your week is off to a great start!

This week I combined a new Thomas Kinkade Castle stamp from our monthly sponsor Cornish Heritage Farms and a Flowering Vine I released a few weeks ago! Combining them together they almost remind me of a Disney story. :)


I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Neenah Classic Crest cardstock and colored it with Copics. I tried to color it as closely to the sample on the stamp as I could. It was so beautiful, I wanted to try and replicate it.

The vine on the digi stamp prints out black but I wanted it to have a green look/feel. So I used the green from the Perfect Pearls-Jewels on top of the black for a gorgeous metallic green sheen.



I colored the flowers in with R27 Copics and used the pretty blue pearls from Prima. I did cut these out from their pattern. They were the perfect size and color...so what else is a girl to do but grab her trusty craft knife? LOL!

Our weekly sponsor this week is Stamp and Create! Be sure to check out their cute stamps!
Thanks for stopping by for a visit and I hope you have a wonderful week!

I also entered this card in a few NEW challenges I just found! :)
