Inksential pen

This week, Faith has challenged us to use and Inksentials pen in a card.   Head on over to the Flourishes Newsletter to check out her tutorial.  I stamped the adirondack chair from the Beach Life stamp set, in Palette ink onto kraft card stock.  Once the black ink dried, I took out my inksentials pen and colored in the chair.  It takes a few minutes for the white ink to dry, so I used some Copic markers and colored in the grass, then stamped the "cherish today" sentiment (found in the strawberries set).  To add a some embellishments, I tied twine through the buttons, then attached the buttons to the cardstock using Zip-Dry.  Its a clean and simple card, that will be sent in the mail.
Thank You for all of your well wishes the last few days, I'm starting to feel much better.
"Cherish Today"
