Shopping Our Stash #169 - Who's Who

This week's SHOPPING OUR STASH challenge is "Who's Who." This time around the SOS crew would like you to use a photograph or a stamped image of a person.

Here's what I came up with using the "Make Your Own" stamp by Hero Arts and some retro looking design paper. I had fun with my distress markers and water brush water colouring the vintage ladies.

Shite I used to make this card:
  • Very vanilla cardstock (SU)
  • Watercolour paper (Canson)
  • Tuxedo Black ink (Memento)
  • Make Your Own stamp (Hero Arts)
  • Ladies &Gents and Trendsetter design paper (Websters' Pages Petite Papers)
  • Walnut Stain, Picked Raspberry, Shabby Shutters, Tumbled Glass, Victorian Velvet and Spiced Marmalade distress markers (Tim Holtz)
  • Water pen (Tim Holtz)
  • Ink blender tool (Tim Holtz)
  • Filmstrip ribbon (Tim Holtz)
  • Chit Chat stickers (Tim Holtz)
  • Water spritzer (SU)
  • Three flower punch (SU)
