Ching-Chou Kuik stamped card


I love working with Sweet Pea Ching-Chou Kuik stamps there are so many possibilities for creating mood with colour.  I masked the image and applied a background of various coloured inks, I don't get on with brayers and I hate the ink wastage so I always use brushes.  I then coloured the image itself with Promarkers and completed areas of the image with glitter.  I've used the sketch by Pascal from Sweet Pea Stampers challenge
This is my entry into the following challenges


Thank you for stopping by I appreciate your interest and comments
