How does Christmas in July sound for an entry titled "Beautiful Season?" It felt like Christmas yesterday when I got to open my huge SU order! The Beautiful Season stamp set is my new Christmas favorite, it got inked up right away.
This set has a beautiful bird image and one of the sentiments is "Thinking of you at Christmas." The image was stamped on watercolor paper. Next I colored the bird with my Aqua painter and inks, keeping a light touch since I wanted only a wash of color. Instead I wanted to highlight the texture and details from the strip of Mocha Mornig Specialty DSP that has rich black flocking against a Crumb Cake background. I could not wait to get the Mocha Morning paper in my hands, and I was not disappointed. It is truly gorgeous!
This will be my entry at The Paper Players challenge.
I hope to do more stamping in the few days I have left until convention. I am sure excited, I packed all my clothes for the trip on Monday, a full week before I leave!
