Ching-Chou Kuik's Digital Stamps Monthly Challenge Blog - Kym's Inspiration Post - Friday 19 February 2016

Here is my weekly inspiration post for the Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps Monthly Challenge Blog.  The week the Design Team have been given the topic of "anything goes".

Before I do I'd like to remind you that our challenge this month is "LOVE".
Here is another Pocket Letter I have made with the colour scheme purple - my favourite colour.  If you haven't seen these before pop on over to Janette Lane's Blog for more information - looking there is at your own risk as the making of Pocket Letters is rather addictive!!!!

For my Pocket Letter I have used three images:  Shih Tzu, Dreamy Lily and Papillon. I have coloured the images in with my Promarkers and inked around the edge with a chalk ink pad.

The backing papers is from my stash and I have cut up to make the background for the ATC sized pieces of artwork.

I have finished the pocket letters off with various stamps, Nuvo crystal drops, Craftwork cards die-cut sentiments and a peace of Stampboard which I have coloured, stamped on, coloured and scratched to add some texture.

Behind the Pocket Letter is lots of little goodies for the recipient!!
