Card

Just a quick card share. I stamped this on velour paper. If you click on the picture and enlarge it, you can see the neat texture. I colored with pencils (I think). I did this awhile ago, so I really am trying to remember what I did. I'm almost certain I just used pencils. It's a sweet image, anyway, and I think I have to dig this stamp out again.

Velour paper is pretty neat for stamping on. I did have to take a Micron pen and outline in the spots where the ink wasn't quite dark enough.

Oh how sweet! Charles (my beau) loves hippos. I love how you watercoloured it. Looks like a painting! :o)

Michelle, this is Kristi from the Women and Everything list...I said something to you on the list today, but it occurred to me that you may not read it anymore......Congratulations on becoming a grandmother! My friend Penny was a grandmother at the age of 36! (I was not until 59!) It means, usually, that you can be much more active with your grandchildren. I'd love to hear from you again. I was gone most of the summer, from late June until after mid-August.
