I'm featuring images from the Sakura and Oriental Silhouette sets. 

I inked up the tree image with a Faber Castel Big Brush pen and stamped onto High Gloss Cardstock. The pen is filled with India ink which is alcohol ink friendly - won't smudge.

I then dropped colors of Spectrum Noir Ink Refills - OR1, LV1,  and PP1 and blew  the colors around with a straw. I added more drops as needed to fill any large gaps of white space.  I then spritzed the whole scene with alcohol. I added a thin line of OR1 along the bottom  to create a ground (the dropper tops are wonderful for lines!) and dabbed with a paper towel to create a subtle textured ground.

I stamped the small medallion image onto gold cardstock, cut it out with a punch and popped it up  Double Sided Adhesive Foam Circles.

Please hop around to see all the fabulous projects featuring new Sheena's new images and have a chance to win.

Crafter's Companion has had several new releases. For more ideas, be sure to pop over to the Crafter's Companion Information Blog.
