I inked the hands with 2 inks from Pinkfresh Studios…Warm Buff and Doe. For the cap, I used Black Soot Distress Ink. On top of the Black Soot, I applied Dark Matter Stickles with a palette knife. It did warp my cardstock a bit, but not enough to bother me.
I was given this very cool Congratulations die from Penny Black by my awesome friend Amy from Amy’s Wares. I die cut it with holographic cardstock and black. I layered them slightly offset to create a shadow. I drew a few fine lines into the tassel with a black PITT pen from Faber Castell and inked my white card base with VersaFine Clair Ink in Nocturne.
