Have I told you how excited I am to be part of the amazing Stamp of the Month Blog Hop? I've followed this hop for years, garnering inspiration from all the wonderful participants. How lovely to be included in their midst now. You should have come from Vickie O'Dell's blog, but the blog is a circle so you can start here (or anywhere) and keep going until you get back to your first stop.
I took just the banner and combined it with the sign from the Heart & Home set to make this card...
The Sugerplum color is very difficult to capture in a photograph. At least it is for me. And it was impossible to match the color with markers so I ended up doing my old standby technique to color the sign...I squeezed the closed stamp pad together several times to press ink into the lid, opened it up, and used a waterbrush to pick up color to paint my image.
Here's a list of supplies (with links for your shopping convenience):
- Heart & Home
- February SOM
- Feels Like Home paper
- New England Ivy ink
- Sugarplum ink
- Espresso ink
- Charcoal ink
- Micro-tip Scissors
- Foam Tape
- Glue Pen
- Black & White Dots
- Waterbrush-Small Round
- Grey Marker
Now you're off to Kathy Burrow's blog. As always, Melinda Everitt has a complete list of all the participants of this months' hop.
Until next time,
