Just for You

I LURVE this set from the new catalogue!!! But stoopid me ordered it in clearmount but forgot to check if I had a block the right size for this beautiful feature image! So I had to wait until my next order before I could use this beautiful stamp!!!
I made a bit of a faux watercolour look to the image by spritzing the Shimmer White (I wish you could see the faint shimmer, it's so much nicer in person!) with some water before stamping a few times, then when the cardstock was mostly dry I stamped again to give the illusion of fore & back grounds to the image, there were a few places that the foreground image looked a bit "sharp" in contrast to the background so I really lightly spritzed some more water and then dabbed it dry with some papertowel.
I used one of Makeesha's old Inkspirations challenges for the sketch (another from my to-do list), with some new punches (I'm addicted to punches!) and some of the Sweet & Sour Specialty DSP to finish it off.

Ink: Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive & Rose Red Stampin' Write Markers, Rose Red
