When I seen this week's Operation Write Home Sketch #251, I wasn't sure what I wanted to do. I was gifted a bunch of Magnolia stamps last year by a dear friend and I hadn't inked up any of them, mostly because I don't think I color very well and the images are so adorable, that I didn't wanna mess them up.
I had some trouble with the inks I was using tonight. The first time I stamped the image, I stamped it using a black hybrid ink from My Favorite Things, it smeared horribly. I tossed that image aside and used some Memento Black ink on this one. It smeared a little, but not as much. I used Neenah Solar White for the first image that got tossed and Copic Express-it paper for this image.
My husband said he thought she was adorable and reminded him of our youngest when she was little.
I used some Wink of Stella pens on the image and the flourish to make it shimmer.
**GIVEAWAY!!!** I have two of these stamps and am going to give one away. Please leave a comment on this post along with your email address spelled out.. with spaces .. ie: giveaway AT gmail dot com
