Live, Laugh, Love


Good Morning,

I have had this image stamped and coloured for a couple weeks, but I couldn’t decide what to do with it until late last night!  I found this beautiful background paper at M’s a few weeks ago, and decided it was time to cut into it!  I didn’t want to cover it up too much, and look, NO distressing! lol  I mounted the Audrey stamp (from The Stampsmith) with pink Bazzill Bling and light brown  Bazzill, then layered that all onto the background paper.  I then used my new die cut from Quickutz (Flourish), one in brown, one in pink, then added those, and put on some lovely little crocheted flowers!  I actually traded some stamping supplies that I was selling, for the crocheted flowers!  I love the barter system!  I then stamped the saying, Live, Laugh, Love from Inkadinkado twice with Chestnut Roan Chalk Ink.  This was all layered on pink Bazzill bling paper, then the light brown again.

The Stampsmith photo stamped image was stamped with Ancient Page Chocolate brown, the very lightly coloured in with Tombows and a water colour paint brush.  I wanted to keep it light.  Isn’t Audrey just beautiful?

It is a beautiful morning here in Halifax!  The sun is shining, and the birds are singing.  I think I may just spend the day stamping with all the windows open!  Sunshine always makes the day!

Enjoy your day!
