A is for Alphabet – Chunky book swap – KCUK

Ever have one of those days where no matter what happens, you know you just HAVE to stamp or you’ll crack up?  Today was one of those.  Since I’d already started this, I just finished it off with a bit more stamping, a little more ink and a couple of embellishments.  Don’t you just love that pen nib?  I do, anyway, lol – I’ve had them for ages and this is the first time I’ve used one – they’re a great copper colour but the hand is just so cool.  It was the ideal thing to highlight the a in the alphabet!  Hard to believe you can actually use it as a nib but you can and apparently, they’re great for copperplate.

It’s glossy card and I’ve used Stormy Sky, Tumbled Glass and Pine Needles Distress inks for the background.  It doesn’t show very clearly because the ink was so light, but there’s an alphabet stamped behind the main image, stamped after masking the little boy.  Might have to recolour that bandana and his clothing and shoes – I used distress inks but they seem to have faded into the background with it being glossy card…  I’ve now added some Copic colour and white highlights, so I think it looks better.  May try to get a photo tomorrow to compare.
