I started by stamping the images onto Spectrum Noir Ultra Smooth card stock with Gina K Black Amalgam ink and colored them with Copic markers.  The colors I used will be listed at the end of this post.  I then cut the images out with Cutterbee scissors and set them aside.  I stamped the greeting onto a the top corner of white card stock that had been cut with the Banner Double Stitched Dies using Versafine Clair Nocturne ink.
