Gardening with Grandpa



Today I would like to show you a card I've made using the Jimmy & Grandpa Gardening Stamp from In2Stamps

This is a lovely stamp, it has a great vintage feel and would be great for Father's Day, Birthday or even a Thank  You.

I stamped the image using Brilliance Ink in Coffee Bean and brushed out the ink using my water brush.

Here's a close up:

I am loving this Penni I love the vintage look and I think you are so creative to keep the image as a sepia tone it works perfectly with the papers. I love looking at old photos that have this colour tone. Fabulous work.
