It's Not All Black and White

No Coloring Required!

Have you tried any of Cornish Heritage Farms' Thomas Kinkade stamps yet? Oh my word! I'm in love. I put off buying them because I figure I won't be able to color them. But you don't need to color them. They stamp so beautifully and with such depth and shading, using only one ink. I inked up the stamp with my brayer to get even coverage, (Can't remember where I read that tip.) and stamped onto whisper white.

And one of Verve Visual's most recent releases, Wonderful Wishes, works so well with these classic images. This one reads "Wishing you life's greatest comforts". What a heartfelt sentiment, hmm?

I made this card using today's sketch challenge at Splitcoast. Thanks so much for stopping by and happy stamping!
