It's Not All Black and White

Limited Supplies, Very Limited

Can you believe that I was in Vegas for an entire week and didn't take a single picture? Well, it's true. We were there on business, but I did manage to squeeze in a stop at the Bellagio spa. Mmmmmm. The Las Vegas hotels have the most amazing spas and I try to go to at least one each year while we're there. What a treat!



I also took a few stamping supplies with me and managed to put together two cards, this being one of them. I actually stamped these three Hambo penguins at home and just took the stamped image with me. Aren't they so darling? I colored with markers and a water brush on watercolor paper. The sentiment is by A Muse, and then I added the swirls on each side. Where did the swirls come from? I was rather proud of this (ya know, limited supplies and all): I inked only these swirls on the frame stamp from Papertrey Ink's new set, Piece of Cake. Don't they make darling little accents?

What's In It?

Stamps: Penguins (Hambo); Warm Winter Wishes (A Muse); Piece of Cake (Papertrey Ink)

Paper: Stamper's Select White (Papertrey Ink); Black, watercolor (Stampin' Up!); Perhaps (Basic Grey)

Ink: Onyx black (Versafine); pumpkin pie, bashful blue, sahara sand (Stampin' Up!)

Accessories: water brush; ribbon (May Arts); white pen (Sakura); silver brads, ticket corner punch (Stampin' Up!)


Have you been checking out the Sneak Peaks over at the Verve Visual blog? There'll be a new project every day until November 10, because on that day TWO new stamp sets will be available. I'll be chiming in with a card on Friday, so make sure you stop by.
