For My Sis....

This is only my third attempt at coloring an image, I have not been thrilled with the last ones, but I love how this one turned out!

* I realize coloring with Crayola is not the best option but it works for now*

I am sending this to my sister, this is what she looked like when she was little!

I used Eucalypptus Walnut spray ink. The  background paper was white I used this spray to help it look nicer with the leaves from the flowers.

I colored the stamp image with Crayola twisters LOL! ( No copics yet!)

I found the flowers in the wedding section at Micheal's

Scallop is from Accent Essentials

And added some bling.
Scallop punch, corner rounder

Inside stamp says thinking of you

  10. I hsve been thinking about getting into colouring stamps. I might just use your idea and start with coloured pencils to see if I like it before I advance on and dish out. Also, I got water colour pencils that I have never used. hummmmm you have got me thinking!
