Loving It!!!

I ordered the 'deal of the day' last week from Unity Stamps...and I am LOVING IT!!!  

It is called So & So Loves and I think my favorite part is that it leaves a spot for you to 'carve' your initials in a tree...  Here it is stamped in Black Stazon and in the Saddle Brown Stazon.

Please keep in mind coloring has never been my strong suit.  I was going for the look of Aspens which are bascially white with dark spots.  The first image is colored using the following Prisma pens:  Warm Grey 10%, Cloud Blue, Crimson Red, and Canary Yellow.    The second image:  Cool Grey 10%, Cloud Blue, Coppenhagen Blue, and Canary Yellow.  It's a work in progress as the color isn't quite there yet.

This last photo is why I locked myself away to play with my new stamp...  My living room was totally rearranged by The Boy Who Paints Himself With Ketchup - need I say more?


  1. I have stamp envy....

    Oh, and little boy envy. :D He is the cutest EVAH!!!!

  2. BWAHAHAHA! Love the toothy grin!

    You did FABULOUS coloring Betty! Love the red bird- and the aspens are awesome! Think the warm grey is better than the cool for some reason, but they are both FAB!

  3. Ms. Betty I recieved your package of awesome goodies on Friday and just wanted to stop in and say THANK YOU for all of the super fun things! I have set aside tomorrow as a day of scrappin' and I can't wait to get started with all of the goodies that you sent. The blog hop was a ton of fun and I am so glad to meet my fellow Idahoan Card Nut. :) Hugs to you! And thank you!!!!!
