Going Away 2

sugar nellie, sweet ebony, elisabeth bell
Well, I'm reposting this card because I wasn't happy with it last night. It really needed a sentiment but I just didn't have a stamp that fit. But I totally forgot about all the rubons that I have! So I'm much happier with this version! What do you think?

I'm not so good at remembering to give details about the card - but I'll try since I know how much I appreciate when others do!

The Recipe:
Stamp: Sweet Ebony "Pen Pal" (Sugar Nellie)
Ink: Ranger Archival
Coloured with: TH Distress Inks - worn lipstick, shabby shutters, faded jeans, dusty concord, tattered rose (skin), vintage photo and brushed cordoroy (hair)
Paper: K & Co.

p.s. I decided while I was at it (and after making the above sketch) to make a sketch for the Sweet Ebony "Pen Pal" card below! Maybe sometime when I'm more organized I'll print out my sketches and put them in a notebook for future reference! If you like it and want to use it - go for it! But please leave me a link - I'd love to see your cards :)
