FMS 234 and Inkspire Me 247

Today is the last Friday of the school holidays so to me it seems like the last day of the holidays and I've pretty much been in my craft room all day. I recently bought the Going Global set of stamps and it seemed to me that they should get used before they retire at the end of May!

I've taken my inspiration from two challenges, the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches and the theme challenge at Inkspire Me.

At Stamp Camp earlier in the year, the wonderful Jackie Noble showed us a card that used retiform as a technique and I have been fascinated with it ever since. I've had another play with the technique for this card.

Card: Basic Black, Very Vanilla, Mossy Meadow scrap, DSP from Going Global paper stack
Stamps: Going Global
Inks: Tuxedo Black, Mossy Meadow, Sahara Sand, Versamark
Other: Gold embossing powder, Gold metallic thread, sponges
