Sponged Ink

I only use this stamp every once in awhile. For some reason I get to thinking there is too much coloring involved and avoid it. Once I get it out and use it, I realize that it is a simple stamp to color. I stamped it in Jet Black StazOn ink. Everything is colored with sponged on ink, except for some details on the sun. They are done with colored pencils. I added gold stickles around the rays of the sun, icicle stickles on the wings of the dragonfly, and Crystal Lacquer over the face of the sun. The stamp is from QwikArt Stamps off of Collage One stamp sheet. QwikArt is having a great sale right now. Their stamp sheets, which are normally $20 each, are $10 each and Purchase 3, Get 1 Free. You sure can't beat that!

My little dog, Princess, has developed a habit of bringing me things to "trade" for dog cookies. Most often it is a tiny scrap of paper that she finds somewhere around my stamping desk, but occasionally she will find a coin under the recliner that has fallen out of dh's pocket. It is so cute to have her come up and offer me a coin for some cookies. Who could resist that?
Have a great day!!!
Inky hugs!
Update: I just learned that the link to My Paper Moon has not been working. I apologize. I'm still learning. : ) From now on I'll test my links. It's working now and I'll post it here too so that you don't have to backtrack to find it. My Paper Moon

I love all your postings - you're doing a great job with your new blog. When you get a chance I'd like to get the recipe for the oatmeal bath. I think it would make a great little teacher gift by itself or in a little basket with a scrubbie and maybe a lotion, etc. Thanks!
Hugs & Prayers,
P.S. Your dog is adorale - whoever chose her had good taste ;)
