BIG Wet Kisses

I've finally gotten back to using the last few colored images 
from my BIG Stack of 145 Stamped and Colored Images.
(I got sidetracked for a while working on other card projects 
and had abandoned my stack of colored images.)

This time...I pulled out a group of really cute fish images
from a Sparkle N Sprinkle stamp set called Big Wet Kisses
The sentiment was chosen from Concord & 9th's Love You. Mean It stamp set

I colored the images with Copic markers.
I also decided to do some inking with Ranger's Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Ink
on some great green LCI Card Stock....
as opposed to the usual white card stock that I use most often when inking.
The image layer is matted in a beautiful deep turquoise-like card stock..also from LCI.
(A favorite of mine)

Here's the Distress inking...on the green card stock...after being spritzed with water.
(I created 4 panels...to create 4 cards)
I was very pleased with how the ink looked on the green card stock.


I trimmed the images to a squared shape..and matted each image panel
The Concord & 9th Sentiment is ideal for this image, I think!
and...
The Distress Ink background is EXACTLY what I had in mind 
when this card existed only in my crafty little head.
*Not sure if you can see them...
but there's a sprinkling of Nuvo Jewel Drops on the inked area of the card


I really enjoyed creating each of today's cards...
The image was fun to color...and I really enjoyed creating the inked background...
(and...YES!...Distress OXIDE Inks ARE THAT GOOD!)

I'm thinking that I will revisit this stamp/card when Valentine's Day rolls around
to create a few of this card with a different color palette.

Thanks for visiting today my crafty and creative friends...
Have a super Saturday!
