Cottage Life

Finally put my old cottage stamp into action - and discovered my stazon ink pad desperately needs re-inked and my Tuxedo Black memories stamp pad is really black... LOL

As I was planning to use Twinkling H20's I used my stazon ink pad and found it looked very light - so I then used my memories tuxedo black with ultrfine clear ep... so one was suitable to colour the other wasnt... I mounted them both exactly the same and used the same sentiment stamp... I think I prefer the coloured version despite my inspiration being a Black & White image over at Lavinia Stamps.  
Materials used: Tsukineko Tuxedo black memories ink, Stazon black ink, Twinkling H20's, snippets of green & white cardstock, Green versamark ink & Papertrey Ink sentiment stamp, double sided foam tape.
