And here's the rizzle-dizzle (real deal):
Here's the stamp (please note the chew marks-- so funny [kind of]-- when Millie was young, she got into my stamps and chewed a few up, including the first stamp I ever carved. When she got to this stamp of her pretty face, she only nibbled the edge... is that amazing? What a brat!):
Supplies and notes:
- This is the second stamp I've ever carved and it is by far the best of mine. I carved it using my first SU! kit.
- I embossed the stamp using Tim Holtz's Distress embossing pad with green Stampendous embossing powder, which has a very nice silvery sheen which refuses to be caught on camera.
- The holly berries were made with a cut toothpick dipped into Fired Brick Distress paint
- I wrote the sentiment on a scrap piece of cardstock using a Zig Emboss Writer and Recollections embossing powder in Ebony. I edged it with Color Box chalk in charcoal.
