I stamped in black the image of the two elderly women with my MISTI (good thing too as it took two tries to get a good impression). Stamped the sentiment (that I just love - perfect for my best friend and me as we approach our 65 birthdays!) in navy blue for a bit of contrast to the black. I lightly coloured the women with coloured pencils - I didn't want strong solid colours so used a very light hand.
I masked off the image and sentiment, and used a brick stencil with texture paste to create an arch around the edge. It looked kind of blah just in white but I didn't want it to look heavy so sprinkled on some rust Perfect Pearls just to give it a bit of random colour.
Yesterday's SCS Ways to Use It challenge is "Punctuation" - I realized that this sentiment stamp has 4 apostrophes and an ellipsis so it is perfect for that challenge too.
