Another one bites the dust... or rather hits the retired list. Considering how much I have used this set over the last few years it probably deserves a much needed vacation. :) However it's inclusion on the retirement list brought it back to my attention so I had to ink it up one more time. Heh heh... poor abused overworked stamp. I kept the layout simple but used some really pretty paper and ribbon to glam it up a bit.
Quick notes: stamp image from Figures of Speech on Whisper White cardstock in Black StazOn ink. Color with markers and highlight with a Sakura Clear Stardust pen and then layer on Always Artichoke cardstock. Background piece of Mellow Moss is wheeled with the Rough Texture Jumbo wheel in Melow Moss, the edges were sponged with Always Artichoke Classic ink and then it was mounted on a River Rock card base. A piece of Figgy Pudding designer paper was layered on Bravo Burgundy and then a piece of ribbon was noted around it and three black brads added to the corner. Adhere all of the panels together with foam mounting tape or dimensionals (woo hoo, I finally got more of them tonight!).
