Getting Inky!!

Happy Sunday!

Everytime I ink up a rubber stamp, I remember how fun it is to get inky!!! This is my all time favorite Kraftin' Kimmie stamp!

Stamps: Kraftin'Kimmie (Charlotte)
sentiment -CG
Papers: SU! cs (turq/choc), Basic Grey dp,
K&Co brown dp
Ink: Copic, Prisma markers
Other: $store star bling, Offray ribbon,
Cropadile hole punch, piercing tool,
white gel pen, Stickles

Today is the first challenge of "Let's Ink it Up" a challenge for rubber/acrylic stamps only, no digis allowed! I have a jelly cupboard filled with rubber stamps and it's time to dust them off!!!

It's another lovely day here in PA, though there is a touch of humidity in the air. We're headed to a picnic so I hope it doesn't get too hot!

Enjoy your day!
blessings!
