Brave, Fierce, and Free

Hello friends, 

I'm playing with some of the new stamps from the Blue Knight Rubber stamps release.  One of my favorite things about Blue Knight is the silhouette stamps.   I used chalk to create the background and then stamped the wolf in black ink.   The sentiment if from Unity.     

Happy Stamping friends, 
Chris

Summer Flower Tidla

Greetings friends,

It had been awhile since I had inked my my Tilda stamps up.  I felt like they needed a little love.  I took a handful of them with me while on vacation to color up.   It was very therapeutic. I couldn't wait to get them onto cards when I got home. 

I liked this girl so much, I colored her in two different color schemes.  Which one do you like better?

Puppy with Stocking

Hello and welcome,

To complete my Christmas Trio,  I colored up another dog from MFT. I think this guy might be my favorite.  It so hard to choose it is a wonderful Christmas set.

Cozy Christmas Puppy

Hello all,

I have another one of the pup's colored up from MFT.   It took me a long time to figure out that he was wearing a scarf.  I thought it was a cape.  I asked everyone in the house and looked at other samples online and still wasn't sure.  Then it hit me.  Duh?  I added some stripes to make it more scarf-like.   It is amazing how a little bit of color can bring a black and white image to life.

Furry and Bright

Hello all,

I have a little Christmas in August today.   Yep...missed July.  Time flies when you are making cards.  I love how the Hero Arts background compliments the dog from MFT.   I hope you had a great summer day!
