Pens & Ink Journal Page

Hello Sin City Friends and Fans! Today I want to show you how I used the new Sin City Stamps release "Correspondence" by Katy Leitch! I just love these!

For this journal page, I chose the fountain pens (multiple and single), ink bottle, logo, script, quote, and paperclips and used them in a couple of ways.
I started with the background................................................................................................................
Use the script stamp and watermark ink to stamp.
Sprinkle embossing powder on stamped areas and heat activate with a heat tool.
**This step can be done using a colored ink and clear embossing powder as well.
For this, I used an iridescent gold embossing powder.
 Next, I added sprays of browns and blues. In between each color, add water, and move page around to allow drips and rolls of color. Be sure to dry in between every color.
Next, I stamped the multiple fountain pens on the edge using only the tips and a dark brown ink.
This added a pop of brown.
Stamp images of the pens, ink, etc. onto cardstock.
For added strength and shine, these were embossed with clear embossing powder as well.
Cut them out.
Stamp the quote onto cardstock and cut out. Add brown ink with a sponge around the edge to enhance and create depth. Adhere to page with foam dots.

Adhere your cut out stamped images. Add some flowers that coordinate with your color scheme. Splatter white acrylic or gesso and a few of the spray colors used all around the focal area. I then stamped the paper clip in a dark blue ink in various areas to add a bit more blue and to incorporate that stamp!
I hope that you have enjoyed this project and are inspired to get stamping!!
