Ching-Chou Kuik's Digital Stamps Inspiration Post - Friday 23 September 2016

Here is my weekly 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 "SYMPATHY/THINKING OF YOU/THANK YOU".

This week the Design Team have the topic of "anything goes".
As you can see I have made a Pocket Letter.

I have definitely fallen in love with making these.

I have used the Ching-Chou Kuik images "Little Sparkles", "Little Talks" and "Gentleness".

I have coloured the images in with Promarkers and inked around the edges with Tim Holtz's Vintage Photo distress ink.

I have used various stamps for the remaining pocket letter fronts.

I have used a scroll/flower/leaf stencil and spread Dutch Doobadoo texture paste through it.  When I moved off the stencil I sprinkled some brown glitter on top.

These pocket letters have been finished off with flowers cut from some backing paper, brads, lace, ribbon, punched leaves, die-cut sentiment and a wooden snail and ladybird embellishment.
Here are the back of the pockets which include buttons, charms, flowers, wired leaves, stamp, die-cut leaves, gems, pearls and the most important part, the letter.

I am entering this pocket letter into the following challenges:
