I went to a rubber stamp convention yesterday and won a door prize!!! I got a brand new rubber stamp, not even available to the general public yet, from Stampin’ D’Amour!! Pamela, the owner, told me that I was the very first to own this stamp!!! Of course I had to use it first thing upon arriving home. I brought out some other rubber stamps to greet it, and here she is in all her beauty:
I stamped her in waterproof black ink on watercolour paper. I watercoloured her face, and then used a coloured pencil and odorless mineral spirits for her hat – a marriage of my two favourite ways to colour!
