Jot This Down

Thanks to my latest follower, Annie! Nice to have you join me. While working with the Secretary Pool stamp set from the March release for Artistic Outpost, it occurred to me that that this dear pair of children standing in front of the alphabet from the Think and Wonder set, also by Artistic Outpost, would work well together. This may be one of my all time favorite stamp images. The versatile alphabet from Secretary Pool was stamped with Festive Berry Distress Ink onto Kraft card stock and matted and layered to the card front. The children were layered and mounted next. I tucked in a ruler and numbers from the Whimsical Melange stamp set and finished off with some sentiments , a paper clip and pencils from Secretary Pool. The bottle label and "love" are from Apothecary. Many of the images were distressed with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. Simple embellishments include repurposed ribbon, an Ideology pen nib, and binder clip, some vintage lace, a snippet of burlap, some red Scrappers' Floss and a vintage button. Thanks for dropping by today! Best wishes, Yvonne
