I saw this challenge over at the Stamp, Ink, Paper challenge and could not resist the temptation of designer’s choice!
What to do, what to do?! So many options! And then I saw one particular rubber stamp sitting out on my table…if it had hands, it would have been waving it’s hand in the air and shouting “Me, Me, Pick Me!!”. I purchased it some months ago at the Scrapbook Expo, knowing I was planning to start coloring, but have been putting off acquiring the markers to do so 🙂
Now, about Copics…they are awesome. But expensive. And I am ‘that’ girl, the collector. I can’t just have a few of anything, I want them all!! So I found these markers online (Close to My Heart also carries them) and purchased both sets. I am very satisfied with the colors I now have and can add to them with Copics as time and budget allow!
This rubber stamp is designed by “Stamps by Judith” and is called Flower Grater. I fell in love with it and had to bring it home! This is my favorite type of bouquet!
After I was done, I came across the perfect paper to accent it with!! Isn’t it fabulous?? I have used it before and am now down to my last piece of it so I thought long and hard about using that last piece for an envelop liner!! In the end I compromised and made the envelope liner only half as long as it should be!!
I had SO much fun coloring this image! And while I was coloring the grater, my husband walked in and saw it and was so impressed!! Made my day 🙂
Thank you so much for stopping by and for all your comments yesterday! It feels so good to be creating again!
Wishing you joy and blessings!
