I'm honored to be bringing you "On the Pier". If it looks familiar, you're right; this stamp was in the very first MFT kit offered back in the summer. The kit is no longer available, but if you were kicking yourself because you let the kit get away, you can get the stamp set now! I really love this set and I wish I was walking on that pier with WTG right now, how about you? :)
I stamped the image on a Perfect Paper Panel with Memento Rich Cocoa ink and colored it with Copic markers. Then I matted it with Ruby Red card stock and aged the edges a bit with Old Photo Distress ink. My patterned paper is from the Sea Glass mat pad by K & Company--I love that paper with this image!!! Card stock, in addition to the Ruby Red, is Very Vanilla and Blue Bayou. And, you know I had to tie some sailor's knots and add some hardware in the form of antique brass brads to keep up the nautical theme :) I think the little seashell charm adds some charm of it's own, too.
