I love the Close To My Heart alphabets. They are always so well-thought out and on trend.
I've used two alphabets on this page. The small alphabet is Pen Pal, and the large one is Marker. Don't they look great mixed together? The third stamp set I used is Swirly Seashells. I stamped the outlines with Desert Sand ink (retiring July 31st). From there, I colored them with re-inker. Let me explain. I dropped a couple of drops of cashmere re-inker on my all-purpose mat. I painted the shells using my clear shimmer pen and re-inker. It's so easy, and the shimmer is built right in. Next I dropped a couple of drops of saffron re-inker on my all-purpose mat, and I added highlights with my shimmer pen. Don't you think that turns out great?
