Stampin' Up!'s Elizabeth stamp & Lovely Letters set...

Here's a card for everyone.  I showed this card to my upline, Stella, and she said "oh, an "S" for me?"  I had to be honest and say it was for "Stampin' Up!" but it certainly could be for Stella!  I stamped the "S" from the Lovely Letters stamp set with Basic Black ink and used a sponge with Cherry Cobbler ink to distress the outside edge of the 1 1/4" punched image.  I then layered it onto a piece of Cherry Cobbler cardstock punched with the 1 3/8" punch.  I stamped the Elizabeth stamp with Basic Black ink on Whisper White cardstock and then colored it with Always Artichoke and Cherry Cobbler markers.  The pearls were also colored with the Always Artichoke marker.  When using Stampin' Up!'s markers to color the pearls, I find a couple of coats of color work best - just let them dry in between.  This image was layered on Cherry Cobbler cardstock again and was layered on the Paisley Petals DSP and Always Artichoke cardstock.
