  I made this card recently with 2 older stamps. The SNSS image has been in my stash for years and the sentiment came from a now-closed Mark's Finest Papers stamp set. Both stamps are probably at least 8-10 years old but I still use them both quite often.

I stamped the boat/water image with Versamark ink, then heat-embossed it with clear ep. I masked off the water, and sponged in a night sky with various  inks. I colored the water with Copics, markers, and colored pencils, adding some silvery highlights with a paint pen. The silver border along the bottom is a peel-off sticker.

I'm sharing this with the following challenges:

(must use stamps older than a year)

Thanks so much for the visit today and I hope your day is a good one!
