Retro -One Layer - Birthday!

Retro -One Layer - Birthday!

Bright and Vibrant, isn't it!
Yay, I LOVE it!

I try to buy local when I can.
I try to support smaller art supply stores.
There is a local Art Store in Totem Lake Kirkland.
Small and lonely, I visit it sometimes.
I bought this lovely stamp cube after stamp club today.
When I saw the Retro Sketches 
I went right into action!

Ink the upper portion in Hero Arts Shadow Ink Bubblegum, 
ink the lower half in Tim Holtz Distressed Ink Festive Berries.
