Stamp Set: Morning Glory, Jumbo Wheel-So Swirly

Ink: Regal Rose, Kiwi Kiss, versamark, summer sun

Paper: Bravo Burgundy, Regal Rose, White, Raspberry Twist DSP

Accessories: White Gen Pen, Blender Pen.
Techniques: blender pen with reinkers for coloring
The spots of Bravo Burgundy were created using an almost reinker bottle. I just squeezed it over the colored image to create a splatter of ink on the image.

These were created using the same stamp sets, same designer paper (front and back), same inks, and same color cardstock.
