A stamp here - A stamp there

Yes, I sooooo love stamps!
 This adorable set from Lawn Fawn just arrived in my mailbox this week and they just seemed like the perfect fit for the Dynamic Duos color combination. 
 I knew the little lanterns would be perfect in this Coral color but I needed a backdrop.  I turned to a stencil from Pink Paislee and some great black, Stephanie Barnard spray ink from Clearsnap.  This is actually the negative of the stencil.  I sprayed the black on the stencil on white cardstock and then I never want to waste the ink so I turned it over and placed it on another piece of white cardstock. I love this reverse side the best for this card.  The little extra lines on the lanterns was done with Copic markers and I added some black Liquid Pearls. 
 Here is the Dynamic Duos combo.
 This card uses the retro sketch for this week. 
 I pulled out several Hero Arts stamps to create the card.  The little house is colored by applying Distress Stain directly to the little image.
Here is the retro sketch.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
