Sentiment - Craft Essentials by Joanns



This was the fabulous sketch we had this week.



This one of the brand new rubber stamps just released and oh how sweet it is!
I stamped it with Rich Cocoa Memento ink instead of the usual Tuxedo Black as I think it went better the fur on the bear.
I really layered on the details on this, so much fun to do!
Be sure to grab your embellishments and come along and play with us in The Pixie Cottage this week :)
