This stamp from The Ton has been waiting for me to give it some love. I think I've just been intimidated by it, so I've been procrastinating! So, today I put on my big girl panties and dealt with it.
Like most things I procrastinate about, it wasn't nearly as scary or difficult as I thought. Actually, it is a fun stamp to color. I chose my favorite color. There's something about purple....it is regal, and at the same time unpretentious and fun. And I love it with green. It makes me smile.
The stamp is from The Ton, as I mentioned. It is a clear set called Thoughtful Poppies.
I embossed the stamp in white on some lavender card stock. To color it, I used Tombow markers and a Dove blender. I added white highlights with a Prismacolor colored pencil, and details with a white gel pen.
Some distress ink brushed around the edges of the panel softened it a bit. I embossed the verse (from the same set) onto vellum, and attached it. I layered the whole shebang onto a plum panel, then onto a white card. A few white pearl sequins finish off the card.

I hope you are staying healthy and warm, wherever you are. Winter is cold, snowy, and long here in the northeast USA. I'm so glad I have my craft room to hibernate in when I get tired of dealing with the snow.
Thanks so much for dropping by. It is always great to hear from you.
