New Year, New Stamps!

What a whirlwind December! I haven't posted in awhile, because December always seems to spin away so quickly! We finished our Community Theatre production of "A Child's Christmas in Wales" on the 18th, and my sister arrived for two weeks on the 22nd. My son, his wife, and my sweet granddaughter arrived Christmas Day, and we celebrated on the 26th. Lots of fun with my family, making gingerbread houses, opening gifts, going to the Zoo, and then everyone back to reality!

I didn't do a lot of stamping in that time, but last week got to work with some of my uninked, new (in November ha!) stamps from Unity. Here is one - using a video by Heather Hoffman as inspiration:
The kit is called Penguin Pals, and is super cute! I stamped my image and sentiment with VersaFine Onyx Black, and then painted a watercolor wash when it was dry. I used my Kuretake Gansai Tambi paints. The border was then cut with a die from Pretty Posh. I added some patterned paper, and adhered it all to a white card base. Super fun and simple! AND flat and mailable! More to come later this week!
