Friday Sketchers 57

It's been a couple of months since I had the chance to play with challenges and seeing as I had so much fun revisiting old techniques a few days back I thought I'd use some neglected stash with this weeks Friday Sketcher.
Sort of polished stone technique using a stipple brush and 4 SU ink pads with pearl & copper alchie inks then a Lavinia stamp in versamark and clear ep. It looks like a mushroom colour face on but once the light hits it you can see all the shades of pinks, copper, pearl and chocolate.
DCWV papers with cream copy paper punched with a CraftsToo border punch. Freehand gem doodle with a pewter charm tinted with a brown copic. Uknown sentiment stamp using Chocolate Chip ink.

Fathers day

I'd forgot how much fun some of the old background techniques were so when I saw a GinaK tutorial on stampintv I had to dig out the reinkers and have a play.
Archival cobalt & plum reinker with some silver alchie ink on clarity white gloss card. Katzelcraft tree stamp from the Craftbarn stamped with versafine and clear ep. With a few leaves bleached out. Note, archival inks are hard to bleach, have got some SU ones on order will do a write up on them when they arrive.
Purple co'rdinations card embossed with swiss dots before sanding back. I'm still hunting the perfect fathers day sentiment stamp so will probably end up using a peel off.
