Christmas Kiss - Penny Black

Wow I looooooooooove this stamp!  Its really pretty and its been my challenge this season because I am not used to colouring stamps this large!!!  Gasp - turns out all those Copic lessons are true, you DO need to know how to blend, lol.

But I did pretty good because instead of trying to be what I am not {a copic/marker colourist extroidinare} - I did what I do-do best and that is just wing it!  Hee hee!  And I heard about 'frantage' so I now have another new interest - that is what is great this year, I actually have been learning or rather exploring new things - yeah for me!

SO enough chat - here is the stamp above:

AND here are my efforts -

I really enjoyed being set loose with the embellishments!

I painted this green one using watercolour pencils after I stamped and embossed the image with White Embossing Powder.  So it looks wildly bright - but I went with the whimsical nature of it all and I think its rather "artsy"! 

Well, I enjoyed this stamp so much - now I am waiting for PB "Holly Fairy" to arrive! I've been checking my mail every day, lol!
