GOOD MORNING FRIENDS! I’m still on a roll coloring holiday images. Although I’ve only been coloring a few years, I’ve already accumulated quite a collection of stamps. Recently, I realized that like many crafters, I actually have two hobbies: one is collecting craft supplies and the other is actually using them. So last night, I decided to look through some of the images that have been waiting patiently in my stash to finally make it onto a card.
I’ve long been a fan of Maurie Manning and I have many of her digital stamps as well as those sold as rubber stamps by Penny Black Stamps. Her series of stamps featuring the elves Mim, Finn, Kin and Pippa are among my favorites. Although I’ve colored this image before, I decided to try my hand at it again with non-traditional holiday colors.
Again, I kept the card design simple so that the image could take center stage. It’s getting close to Christmas and I just might have cards ready to mail if I don’t waste time agonizing over layout!
Below are the supplies I’ve used for today’s project. All items were personally purchased except those marked with an asterisk (*) . I never share a product I do not like. All opinions are my own. Read more.
