Sketch Stamp
Topic: Stamping

I fell in love with this stamp on a recent trip to Hobby Lobby (yep, there's one in Nebraska, too - and my daughter knows where to find it!) My first concern was how I could stamp it with permanent ink so I could use watercolors on it. I wanted it to retain the look of a pencil sketch but I only have black ink!

Well, I accomplished it by second-generation stamping. I kept a scratch paper at hand and inked, stamped on the scratch paper, then stamped on the cardstock. It worked like a charm.

This has been colored with watercolor pencils and blended with a water brush. Rounding the corners, I then attached brown brads to the corners, using one to hold some snippets of ribbon.

The clear sticker at the bottom is Ecclesiastes 3:1 "To everything there is a season and a time for every purpose under heaven."
