My new stamp!

Hi all,

I received this adorable stamp in the mail today. My husband won it for me on ebay. I've been wanting it ever since I saw a card made with it.

I colored the image with my prismacolor pencils and baby oil. The edges were sponged using close to cocoa ink. Since the stamp is quite large, there wasn't much room to decorate the card and I didn't feel like making a huge card. So I just framed it with pretty in pink card stock, did some sewing along the edge and then adhered it to the wild wasabi card front.

The sentiment was punched out using a oval punch, and I embellished with some black gingham ribbon and applied stickles glitter. I am so loving this stamp and can't to color the image again. LOL.

  • Stamps: Stampendous (God sent his best - precious moments), Stampin Up (cute converse)
  • Paper: Wild wasabi, pretty in pink (Stampin Up), white (georgia pacific)
  • Ink: Memento Tuxedo black, close to cocoa
  • Accessories and Tools: prisma color pencils, blending stumps, baby oil, star dust stickles glitter, black gingham ribbon, janome sew mini sewing machine, small oval punch
