Snowy family


Another new Ebay purchase today. I have tried a couple of times to get this Penny Black stamp but the bids have gone higher than I wanted to pay so I was delighted when I won this one for £3.20 plus £2.80 postage. I bought some different stamping card to try, Make it Colour, and it is the best card for using with Copics that I have ever tried. It blends so smoothly, no bleeding even when you lay down a lot of colour. This is the first stamp I have used it with and I am really pleased with the shading results.

It's the first time I have used this Memory Box sentiment die this year. I love it but is large so clean and simple looks best I think. I used a Memory Box landscape die, fussy cut the image and added fun flock to their bobble hats.

A beautiful card, beautifully coloured. You are right Penny Black stamps do hold their value and even finding one that you want second hand is tricky. Good for you getting this cute stamp. Xx

That snow family image really cute and looks fabulous in front of the die cut landscape to create a brilliant 3D scene. The sentiment die is lovely too, and yes, the fairly CAS design is perfect and I love it :-)
