SNSS February Release Hop Day 3

Hello and welcome to Day 3 of the blog hops celebrating the February Releases at Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.  
Today we're highlighting 



This set is the first in a series including some very 
encouraging sentiments which can be used with so 
many of the sets you already own!
I created a clean and simple card using black 
and white because the striking contrast 
seemed to symbolize the contrast between fear 
and faith - one leads to the feeling of 
walking in darkness through daily life and the 
other to the freedom of walking in light.
To help the tiny silver key charm stand out, 
I adhered it to a tiny black tag cut using 
the very useful Mini Tags Dies.
I used Color Box Black Licorice ink with a little 
bit of sponging in Tsukneko Archival Black Starlite.
The background is created using the newly released 
stamp means you can create your own dp 
in any combination of colours!

Take a look at the full set and all the details below:



Key sentiment measures approximately 1.75" x 2"
 Designed by Korin Sutherland
Stamp set is $15
