Hi guys! Today I am playing with Sweet Stamps Shops Melvin and Vernie Stamp set!
I adore Owls and Nicole has the cutest sets using Melvin and Vernie...just check them out by clicking HERE!
For this card I stamped Melvin twice, once on my background paper and once on white cardstock. I left the background stamp plain and then used my new Faber Castell colored pencils and Gamsol to color in Melvin on the white cardstock. With Gamsol, I am able to go back in with my color pencils to darken areas and I just love that!
I stamped the sentiment on matching paper and then trimmed it into a banner shape and attached it to the card with foam adhesives. The sentiment is just the cutest, right!? I picture Joey from Friends every time I read it. :)
