Yesterday I sat down to colour this sweet image from Penny Black. I had a couple of ideas as to how I wanted to use it and the first was having it mounted on a newspaper print background to match up with the newspaper in the stamp. I stamped the image four times and then proceeded to colour them all. I coloured the newspaper a little differently each time. (The other three images are now in the to-do pile as I want to try some other colour schemes – a soft purple…maybe colour the sky as well, for example.)
Seriously, how cute is this stamp? It’s a delight to colour…and it is still available! YAY!
Oh, and speaking of delightful…I was totally delighted when I read my emails this morning and found out I was the winner of a set of the new 12 Distress Markers by Tim Holtz and Ranger courtesy of Jennifer McGuire (the guru of stamping!). You all know how much I love colouring with these markers and the new colours were on the to-get list. I’m very excited and very grateful too. Was a great way to start the day!
Hope you all have a wonderful day!
