E is for...

Hi bloggers, and welcome to my little corner of the Blogiverse.  Today, gentle visitor, I am showing my entry into the Craft Barn Alphabet challenge (details here).  This fortnight's letter is E, and I've chosen "Egyptian" as the image for my ATC series.

This stamp (from Clarity) was one of the first I ever bought, after I saw the resist technique in Craft Stamper.  I stamped in Versamark ink onto glossy card, allowed it to dry a bit, then brayered over the ATC with Big & Juicy Soothing Sunset inks.  A quick polish with a paper towel and the job was done.  Easy!
