Well I Never...

tried to colour a stamp! So I grabbed the kids' school watercolour crayons then scoured the house for... a brush! Now a brush is well outside my comfort zone & it was just as tricky as I thought it would be! But I now have a card for my son's birthday & have completed the Created by Hand challenge.

Aren't you glad you tried something new!
I was in your neck of the woods at the end of July with the local Youth Orchestra which I coach for - BEAUTIFUL scenery! Concerts in Montreux, Evian and Thonon.
Did you find Patti's video helpful? If you like to make a mess, this is the technique to try!

You did such a great job that I'll bet you'll be stamping and coloring all the time now. Your birthday card is wonderful.

Me again. Love your blog. You commented on my angel stamp. I'm sorry I can't give you specifics. I bought it at Ben Franklin Craft store. The only marks on it say the following: e-2735 Santa Rosa CA Made in USA copyright 1999 PSX.

OK. It's me again and you can delete these messages since you have to approve messages. I found that the PSX is the name of a stamp company in California. It stands for Personal Stamp Exchange and has been in business for a long time. Hope this helps. Faye
