Ching-Chou Kuik's Digital Stamps Inspiration Post - Friday 24 June 2016

It is time for me to show you my Inspiration Post for the Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps Monthly Challenge Blog.

Before I do I'd like to remind you that our challenge this month is "pearls and lace".
 Here is another Pocket Letter I have made with a mermaid/under the sea theme.

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:  A Bunch of Love, Dance of Butterfly and Forever Valentine.  I have coloured the images in with Spectrum Noir pens and inked around the edge with Tim Holtz's Peacocks Feathers distress ink.

For the background of the pocket letters I have papers from my stash.

To finish my pocket letter I have used various stamps (one of my favourite sets I have bought in the last few years is the one I have used for the seahorse, shells, fish and sentiments and is from Joy! Crafts), die-cuts and googly eyes.
Behind the Pocket Letter is lots of little goodies for the recipient!!
