King of my castle




Sharing a clean and simple card today.  This one was created a while back for a call and wasn't picked up.

The king piece is from Fresh Squeezed stamps.  It's actually an outline shape, that I carefully colored in.  Before stamping it, I used some tape to mask the ground line and a sponge dauber to add the color/shadow.  Then I used a journaling pen to draw in the ground line and stamped/colored the image.

The alphas are from Lawn Fawn.

Quick and easy.  Hope you have a great start to your week.  It was pretty rainy, and even a little snowy here, but looks like spring might actually show up this week!

Supplies Used
Paper/Cardstock:  CTMH - White Daisy and Black cardstock
Stamps:  Fresh Squeezed Stamps - Games People Play; Lawn Fawn - Sally's ABCs
Ink:  Memento - Tuxedo Black; CTMH - Sunkiss Yellow
Other:  American Crafts - Black 03 Journaling Pen; Zig - Black Marker; Tombow- Mono Adhesive
