STAMPlorations Third Birthday Blog Hop - Day 1


STAMPlorations is three years old, and we're having a party with prizes!  Deepti has created this gorgeous birthday stamp set, called Kathryn's Big Wishes, just for the occasion.


I stamped the images in Antique Linen (apart from the string which was stamped in Versafine Smoky Grey) and then watercoloured using Distress Inks.  I couldn't resist of few splatters ;)

  1. What an adorable image!!! Love her plaid dress and LOVE how you colored her hair - it looks as good as a photo! I'd have to pay my hairdresser big $$$ to get highlights like that!

  2. Is there anything you CAN'T do? (I'm going to just take a stab and give that question a big NO). Love your no-line coloring here and the adorable little cheeks you gave her.
