It feels good to stamp!

Maybe I should say, it feels good to color!

One of my co-workers is a Stampin' Up demonstrator and she gave me a TON of discontinued cardstock and some designer paper too!  I was using Gingerbread Tilda and wanted something more fall in theme.   I decided to use yellows and green and honestly, I couldn't be happier with the results.  I used Copics and some distress inks.

I have wanted this stamp for such a long time!  I finally had the opportunity to order it and when my order was lost, I cried!   Lucky for me, the seller reshipped my order and this lovely girl arrived safe in my hands!
I've been admiring the work of Angie Hunt and truly envy her ability to work with distress inks.  A few months ago, I won  a set of distress inks from her!   I still haven't mastered any of the techniques as of yet, but I'm working on creating deep shadows using the Walnut Stain distress ink.  I colored my image with Copics and then used the distress ink to really bring out the shadows.    As usual, I have no idea which papers I used.  I'm on a big mission to use my stash and didn't keep track of my papers.   (I really wish all paper companies would print their name on the back!)

Last but not least is this cutie.  She was in the same order of stamps that got lost.   I was so happy to finally get her!  I've had this pack of paper for a long time and honestly, I really don't like it.  But like I've said, I'm on a mission to use it up!    I think it looks great as a background for this image!
