Hope Your Days are Bright Again Soon

I love this rainbow set by Concord & 9th. Each rainbow stripe is a different stamp so you can ink up each one in a different color. Some have patterns, some don't. The words, since they are clear stamps, form into whatever shape you want so they go around the rainbow rather nicely. I teamed it up with this llama stamp by Whipper Snapper. His name is Kuzco. Isn't he the cutest? I colored him with copic markers.

Give thanks with a grateful heart

I have been stamping for about 20 years. In these 20 years, I have enjoyed several different methods of coloring. Watercoloring is probably my #1 favorite. Copic markers are my 2nd. I have always struggled with Copic markers and I'm not sure why. Everyone else colors with them beautifully. I recently took a Copic marker coloring class at my local stamp store and it helped me a ton but I think I still have a lot to learn! I colored this turkey (isn't he the cutest turkey ever?) with Copics and tried my best and blending the colors. I'll just keep practicing till I get it right :).

Pumpkin patch

For this background, I used painters tape to make the edges all white, then used my Koi watercolors to make the different shades of purples and greens. Make sure to let each square dry before going onto the next, so they don't bleed into one another. Makes an easy and colorful background!
